NEW YORK — Federal authorities have arrested a New York City police officer in connection with a failed plot to kidnap women and cook them.
The FBI confirmed the arrest on Thursday, but declined further comment.
No women were harmed.
The 28-year-old officer lives in Queens. He had been assigned to a Manhattan precinct before his suspension on Wednesday.
He is expected to appear in federal court in Manhattan later Thursday.
NBC has identified the officer as Gilbert Valle.
