15 French riot cops held over stolen whiskey

PARIS -- Some 15 members of France's elite CRS riot squad are under arrest on suspicion of peddling stolen whiskey to their comrades, sources close to the investigation said on Wednesday.

The exact number of police officers involved was not immediately known, but the sources said some of those who have been arrested — from the Saint Etienne and Lyon regions — had been taken into custody.

It is alleged that they resold hundreds of bottles of whiskey that originated from a truck that was inspected by CRS officers, possibly after a road accident.
