NEW YORK (AP) - A Brooklyn detective has been suspended without pay after he was accused of pocketing cash during a business raid.

Chief NYPD spokesman Stephen Davis said Thursday that Detective Ian Cyrus has been suspended. His supervisor was stripped of his gun and badge and placed on desk duty after the alleged incident last Friday.

Authorities allege Cyrus was looking into the sale of untaxed cigarettes when surveillance cameras showed him pocketing $3,000.

The internal affairs bureau is investigating.

The president of his union, Michael Palladino, says it would be inappropriate make a statement because there is an ongoing investigation.
