Seventh Defendant Pleads Guilty in Baltimore Police Gun Trace Task Force Case

A 38-year-old Pennsylvania man pleaded guilty Thursday in U.S. District Court to committing an armed home invasion to help a corrupt Baltimore police detective steal $20,000.

Thomas Robert Finnegan, who is not a police officer, admitted that he donned a “police” tactical vest, broke into the home and held a gun to the homeowner after being recruited into the plot by Detective Jemelle Rayam.
