Des Moines police suspect 2 officers planted evidence

Posted: Updated:

Des Moines police say two officers suspected of planting evidence in a 2015 narcotics case have quit the force.

Sgt. Paul Parizek said Tuesday that investigators will review all of the former officers' work since the two joined the department in August 2013. Parizek says the two are suspected of planting the evidence on a suspect before turning over the case to investigators. He says a suspect in that case was arrested and the case adjudicated. He could not say what happened to the suspect.

The two are Joshua Judge and Tyson Teut. A phone listing for Judge rang busy Tuesday afternoon. A public phone listing for Teut couldn't be found.

Parizek says the two former officers so far haven't been charged with a crime.
