A former North Carolina police officer accused of planting fake heroin on a group of men, resulting in their arrest, has been terminated.
Omar Abdullah was terminated from the Raleigh police department on October 28. His termination came weeks after it was announced that a settlement of $2 million was granted to a group of 15 Black men from the city of Raleigh as part of a federal civil rights lawsuit.

According to the lawsuit, last year Abdullah paid an informant to tip officers about illegal drug activities in the area. Instead, the informant gave video clips and voice recordings that were missing key components.
At least 15 men were arrested for heroine.
When tested at the lab, the substance submitted was found to not be drugs.
It also stated fake heroin was planted by Abdullah and other police officers reportedly knew this was occurring.
The men arrested had already spent a combined 2.5 years in prison before charges were dismissed.
Abdullah was placed on paid administrative leave last year pending the outcome of the investigation.
