A D.C. police officer accused of being a crooked cop pleaded guilty Tuesday to a felony charge of attempted second degree burglary.

Jennifer Green, 28, was charged with burglary and receiving stolen goods.

Police say the six-year-veteran was arrested during a sting operation in Northwest early last month.Green is on paid leave.

According to the charging document, Green met with a confidential informant on March 4. The confidential informant was known to police because the person had a pending assault with a deadly weapon charge.

At Macombo’s lounge in Washington D.C., the confidential informant told Green that he knew of a residence that had money and drugs stashed in it. The owner of the apartment would be out of town and the informant planned to “hit” it, meaning burglarize it.

Green told the informant that he could do anything with the drugs but she “could use the money” according to the document.

The next day, the informant and Green met up at Green’s apartment. She was not duty at the time. She got into the informant’s car and brought a police radio with her.

The pair drove to a Safeway parking lot about a block from Quincy Street NW. The informant parked the vehicle, grabbed a crowbar from the backseat and then went into an apartment on Quincy Street.

The informant returned to the car with $1050 in pre-recorded District police money and a zip lock bag with soap pieces packaged to look like crack cocaine.

When the informant removed the zip lock bag, Green said, “Oh my God,” according to the document. The informant then handed the money to Green.

Green eventually took $610 of the money, according to the document.

Police arrested Green in front of her apartment after the informant dropped her off.
