A black NYPD cop has been charged with attempted burglary and conspiracy for a plot to swipe nearly $1 million from a convicted drug dealer's former apartment

Shawn Jenkins, 43, faces up to seven years in prison if convicted of conspiring to raid the apartment with a police informant in May 2009. Jenkins - who was being secretly taped - plotted to invade the home with a fake warrant, Taser guns and cuffs to immobilize the current tenant, court documents show. Jenkins told the informant he had once worked as a bodyguard for deported Dominican dealer Eugenio Perez and that Perez made him a map showing $900,000 hidden under the floorboards of the apartment. When he went to carry out the burglary, the feds moved in, officials said.
