Former Memphis cop pleads guilty in drug case

A former Memphis police officer pleaded guilty today to federal drug charges in which he admitted illegally obtaining painkillers from an undercover informant.

Michael Shane Sinnock, 36, a 13-year veteran assigned to the Tillman Station precinct, was indicted last December after a year-long investigation.

He was arrested by FBI agents in the Eastgate Shopping Center while on duty after obtaining from an informant 20 Lortab pills that were found in the front pocket of his uniform pants.
