Cop indicted on drug charges ~ FBI arrests 24-year police veteran at his Michigan City home

SOUTH BEND -- A federal grand jury has handed down a 17-count indictment against Michigan City police Officer Donald Webb Sr., including charges of dealing cocaine and marijuana and extorting money from drug dealers.

The FBI arrested Webb, a 24-year police veteran, at his Michigan City home Thursday morning.

The four most serious charges include conspiracy to distribute and distribution of marijuana and cocaine. Each of those counts carries a maximum prison sentence of 20 years and a $1 million fine.

Webb allegedly received shipments of marijuana from Mexico and El Paso, Texas, and used his position to obtain a better price for the marijuana. He is accused of distributing the drugs in and around Michigan City.

As part of his assignment to a drug task force in 1995, Webb obtained names of drug dealers and allegedly solicited money from them with the understanding that he would not arrest or pursue them, according to the indictment.

The indictment also states that Webb provided drug traffickers with information on investigations, undercover officers and informants.

"We took a corrupt officer off the street today, and our community is a safer place," Michigan City Police Chief Eugene Simmons said. Michigan City police began investigating Webb in the late 1990s. By 1999, the department turned the case over to the FBI.
