TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A Tulsa police officer has been charged with receiving bribes and attempting to deliver cocaine.

The Tulsa County District Attorney’s Office charged 40-year-old Tyrone Jenkins on Thursday with two counts of receiving bribes, two counts of violating the Computer Crimes Act and one count of attempting to deliver an illegal narcotic.

Prosecutors accuse Jenkins of receiving two payments totaling $3,100 in exchange for the officer’s agreement to provide confidential information from a Tulsa police computer database. Prosecutors also allege that Jenkins attempted to deliver cocaine.

Jenkins was arrested after Tulsa police conducted a sting operation.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Jenkins.
