Former Officer Gets 21 Years Probation

A little more than a year ago, the news broke that Daniel Roos, a North College Hill police officer and a medal of valor winner, had been arrested in connection with a marijuana smuggling ring. Roos, along with ten others, was charged as part of a conspiracy that brought marijuana into the area by concealing it in the gas tanks of used cars. Roos was part owner of the car dealership involved, according to the indictment. Another key part of the scheme was allegedly laundering money from drug sales through the used-car business. The operation was said to have transported several thousand kilos of marijuana from the Texas area to Cincinnati.

By pleading guilty, Roos will avoid going to jail. Instead, he’ll have a 21-year probation, according to the Columbus Dispatch. As part of the sentence, Roos will have to serve six months of home confinement as well as pay a $5 million fine. Several charges were dropped, subsequent to the guilty plea.

According to the dispatch, Roos’ attorney reports that he is remorseful and will stay at home and help raise his 4-month-old son.

As in other cases involving police officers and drugs, it’s a shock to find out there was criminal activity going on. And now that the matter will be over, we can only hope there are no other officers in the mix who are operating outside the law.

No one wants to see a medal-winning officer convicted. At the time of his arrest, the North College Hill police department stated in a press release: “It is the hope of the police department that this matter comes to a quick resolution in Bryon's favor so he my return to duty." A year later, the hope is that Roos can repair his life and move on.
