ATLANTA — Two Forest Park police officers have reportedly been arrested in an undercover federal drug sting operation, said officials.

Federal officials identified the local officers as sergeants Victor Middlebrook, 44, of Jonesboro and Andrew Monroe, 57, of Riverdale.

MARTA police Officer Marquez Holmes, 45, of Jonesboro was also arrested.

The three officers were part of a round-up of 10 law enforcement personnel and civilians arrested Tuesday morning. U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said the 10 are alleged to have provided protection and other services to drug dealers.
