Virginia Cop Arrested for Downloading Personal Sex Videos from Phone

Then sending the videos to his own phone.

Colonial Heights cop Bryan Glinn Drake, 30,transferred short videos from the phones of a suspect and his girlfriend he arrested on drug charges in March.

A lawyer for the arrested suspect stated that during the arrest Drake searched through the phone and found the videos, which were “short but of an explicit nature.”

The videos were taken by the girlfriend of the suspect Drake arrested.

The downloads were discovered later on June 7th after the suspect was released from jail and checked his iCloud account.

That’s when he noticed three videos had been sent from his phone to a number he didn’t recognize and that the videos were transferred to the phone while he was still in jail.

After his defense attorneys investigated, they learned the number belonged to Drake.

Colonial Heights police launched an internal affairs investigation 12 hours later, which resulted in Drake being suspended and placed on paid leave.

“It is absolutely not the expectation,” Colonial Heights Police Chief William Anspach said.

“We’re just not going to stand for this kind of behavior.”

After being suspended, Drake never returned to work and effectively resigned, which means he could be hired in another jurisdiction since he wasn’t technically fired.

“In Virginia, you cannot lose your certificate that allows you to be a law enforcement officer for misconduct like this…In this case, even though I hear that the officer has resigned, that doesn’t mean he couldn’t become an officer in another jurisdiction,” Claire Gastanaga with the ACLU said.

Currently, the ACLU in Virginia is pushing for statewide legislation that would strip an officer’s ability to apply with another department after being found guilty of misconduct on the job, according to [WWBT](http://www.nbc12.com/story/36999926/police-former-officer-arrested-for-stealing-videos-from-suspects-phone “WWBT”).

Drake, who worked for the Colony Heights Police Department for two years, is now charged on three counts of obstruction of justice and three counts of misdemeanor embezzlement. 

He’s scheduled to appear in court in February.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
