The son-in-law of Gov. Corbett, a narcotics officer with the Philadelphia Police Department, is under investigation by the FBI and was removed from the street Thursday, sources said.
The Philadelphia Police Department confirmed that a narcotics officer was taken off the street and placed on administrative leave Thursday, following the results of an FBI and Internal Affairs investigation. The department said it would not identify the officer because he had not been arrested or formally charged.
Sources identified him as Gerold Gibson, husband of Corbett's daughter Katherine. Gibson could not be reached for comment Thursday.
He was targeted by the U.S. Attorney's Anti-Corruption Unit, and his supervisors were aware of the sting, law enforcement sources said. He has been under investigation for at least eight months, sources said.
