The two officers, John Fortunato, 44, of the 1800 block of Spring Street and William “Gibbi” Thompson, 32, of the 1400 block of Montvale Avenue, face charges of racketeering, bribery, grand larceny and making false statements during a three-month period beginning in June 2014, officials said.
One of the officers was placed on administrative leave and the other was reassigned, officials said. Both officers remain on the payroll of the Philadelphia Police Department.
Officials will not comment on the circumstances surrounding the investigation into this case due to privacy protections.
“We will not tolerate such behavior from any member of our police force, nor are we willing to play the blame game with any officer,” D’Angelo said. “While they may not know each other, they know they are accountable for their actions and the consequences will be on them if they continue like this.”
Fortunato and Thompson’s arrests are pending a third search for more charges.
More charges could be forthcoming, officials said, depending on the number of witnesses to the misconduct that occurred in the five-month period that led to the officer’s departure.
“The investigation continues,” D’Angelo said.
