A sergeant in the Atlantic City police department has been accused of lying to the FBI over financial transactions she made on behalf of her boyfriend, a convicted drug dealer.

Kiyia Harris, 39, allegedly deposited $33,000 cash into her bank account in increments of less than $10,000 to avoid mandatory reporting requirements by banks. That money was used to buy her boyfriend -- who was identified only as D.W. in court documents -- a 1969 Camaro.

When FBI agents questioned Harris over the source of the funds, Harris said she never deposited cash. Federal prosecutors said Harris actually deposited $120,000 in cash into her account between 2007 and 2014.

The case unfolded after narcotics officers investigating Harris' boyfriend followed a car involved in a cocaine purchase to a home Harris shared with her boyfriend in Egg Harbor Township.
