A former Gastonia police officer has been arrested and charged in connection with a fentanyl trafficking conspiracy, according to authorities.

Dove is also charged with trafficking fentanyl, a lethal opiate drug, and instructing someone on how to deceive a polygraph test.

Prosecutors say former Gastonia North Carolina cop first became a suspect after she gave a confidential informant a photo only law enforcement should have 

According to prosecutors, Dove first became a suspect after a confidential informant provided a photo of information thatonly law enforcement should have .

District Attorney Travis Page stated that during the investigation, authorities discovered that the photo originated from Dove.

“She accessed government databases, including CJ Leads, to run record checks, check tag information, and provide contact information to at least 12 individuals… From her personal cell phone we were able to learn that she was involved in some drug trafficking activities,” Page said.

“In one conversation there was a text message back to the defendant that said, ‘These pills aren’t strong enough. Theyneed to be stronger,” Page added.

“When I was sending out the information, I didn’t know it was illegal, that’s why I have so many charges,” Dove said.“The one time I was paid, I wasn’t actually being paid, it was from my aunt. She just basically gave me some money because she’s a lawyer. I was just running a background check on people she was trying to represent.”
