Multiple news outlets are reporting that the son-in-law of Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett is under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Philadelphia Police.
Sources tell NBC10 that Gerald Gibson, a narcotics officer, has been placed on administrative leave. Police reportedly issued a brief statement about an officer being removed from his duties after a joint investigation by the FBI and Internal Affairs. The officer was not reportedly identified and has not been arrested or charged with a crime.
WPVI-TV (6 ABC) reported that Gibson was allegedly found in possession of marked money that was used during a police sting operation.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that according to its sources in law enforcement, Gibson was specifically targeted by the U.S. Attorney's Anti-Corruption Unit and that his supervisors were aware of the sting.
Gibson is said to be separated from Corbett's daughter, Kate Corbett-Gibson, who is a deputy with the state attorney general's office. Corbett led the state attorney general's office prior to assuming the governorship in 2011.
The couple have a one-year-old son.
