HOUSTON, TX – The men in blue’s job is to enforce and uphold the law, but they don’t all fly straight. Former Houston police officer, 36-year-old Marcos E. Carrion, is facing drug charges.

If convicted, Carrion faces a minimum of 10 years in the slammer or a max of life in prison. He could even be slapped with a $10 million fine.
