HOLLYWOOD - Four Hollywood police officers have been arrested after they provided protection and ran heroin and money for what they thought was an organized crime group but was instead an FBI sting operation, a law enforcement source said Thursday.

The source, who is familiar with the case, spoke on condition of anonymity because the case is sealed until today.

The source would not provide further details.

Hollywood Police Chief Jim Scarberry said the officers are veterans, but he declined further comment.
