LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Two Little Rock police officers arrested on federal drug charges are due in court.
Officers Mark Anthony Jones and Randall Tremayn Robinson are expected to go before a judge Friday morning.
Prosecutors say the men face charges of conspiring to aid and abet and attempting to aid and abet the possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possessing a firearm while taking part in a drug-trafficking crime.
They're accused of driving their marked patrol cars and wearing their uniforms while protecting controlled drug deliveries.
They were arrested Thursday and have been placed on paid administrative leave.
It wasn't clear whether Jones or Robinson had lawyers.
