Palisades Parkway Police chief busted trying to buy coke through the mail

The chief of the Palisades Interstate Parkway Police was busted after trying to get cocaine delivered in the mail, according to published reports.

Michael Coppola, 43, was charged Thursday with trying to buy coke and having drug paraphernalia, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office told NJ.com.

He was buying cocaine online, and detectives delivered a package of fake coke to his post office box, authorities told NJ.com. Authorities arrested him after he picked up the package.

Coppola was suspended from duty for 90 days in July after the Bergen County Prosecutor’s office found he gave “awards and incentives” for officers who wrote the most tickets and made the most arrests.
