8 YEARS IN JAIL | 2 men victimized by Gun Trace Task Force file lawsuit
BALTIMORE (WBFF) - Two men who were victimized by Baltimore Police Department's disgraced Gun Trace Task Force have filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit.
Umar Burley and Brent Matthews were involved in a deadly crash after being chased by plainclothes officers wearing masks.
Among those named as defendants in the suit is the estate of the late Det. Sean Suiter.
The $40 million suit was filed Wednesday afternoon in federal court.
The two men served time for a crime they didn't commit.
Burley and Matthews were pulled over and charged for possessing a massive amount of heroin.
Federal agents later confirmed the drugs were planted in their vehicle.
