MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Madison police officer has pleaded not guilty to federal corruption charges.
Thirty-one-year-old Andrew Pullum is accused of taking nearly $4,000 in cash from the trunk of a car after an undercover agent, posing as a citizen tipster, told him she was angry at her boyfriend for dealing drugs and that there might be money and cocaine in the car. WISC-TV reports the complaint says Pullum removed the money and later called for a drug-sniffing dog, but didn’t report the money.
According to the complaint, the sting was set up after a citizen tip in August that the officer might be planning a robbery with other people. Madison police called federal authorities to investigate.
