Two Dallas Cops Were Fired, Charged with Felonies for Lying About Multiple Drug Busts

Dallas police officers Randolph Dillion and Jon Llewellyn were passing through an apartment complex on West Camp Wisdom Road at about 9 p.m. on December 9, 2011 when they spotted Melvin Williams from their squad car taking something -- drugs, they suspected -- from a man in a parked car. Williams was arrested after the officers found a bag of meth under the passenger seat and, in his apartment, more meth, scales, marijuana, and a loaded gun.

Or so the officers said. In a December hearing in a civil case over $3,712 seized during the arrest, District Judge Carl Ginsberg called Dillon and Llewellyn's testimony "largely perjurious" and ruled in Williams' favor after the manager of his apartment complex contradicted much of the officers' testimony, according to the Morning News.

That was only the beginning of their troubles.

Today, both men were fired for including inaccurate information on Williams' arrest report and at least two others during separate incidents; illegally searching a suspect's home without a warrant or proper consent; lying in court; and lying to officers during an internal affairs investigation.

Worse for them, the Dallas County District Attorney's Office announced this afternoon that it is dismissing 60 cases the officers were involved with and charging Dillon and Llewellyn with aggravated perjury and and evidence tampering. Both are third degree felonies, each carrying a possible two to 10 years in prison and $10,000 fine. Warrants have been issued for their arrest.
