Former Zanesville Officer Indicted
(2007-10-25)
Sean Beck
(WOUB) - A federal grand jury has indicted a police
officer accused of conspiring to rob a drug dealer of two pounds of cocaine and sell it for profit.

Zanesville police officer Sean Beck also was charged Thursday with illegally distributing a prescription-drug painkiller and carrying a weapon during a drug crime.

The FBI says Beck conspired with a suspected drug dealer to arrange the delivery of the cocaine to Zanesville in September.

The FBI says Beck planned to stage a false police raid once the drug
was delivered. The raid never happened.

Beck's attorney Scott Weisman would not comment. Beck remains in
custody in Franklin County Jail.

The U.S. Attorney's office says charges against two other police
officers arrested with Beck earlier this month are pending.
