A Bethel Park Police Officer has been arrested by the FBI.

Lieutenant Blake Babin is reportedly facing a felony charge, transporting an illegal alien between October and December last year.

Babin, who has been with Bethel Park since 1990, was promoted to lieutenant in 2015.

Babin is a patrol lieutenant in charge of patrol, traffic officers and the dispatch center.

“The Bethel Park Police Department cannot make any comment due to this being a personnel matter. Questions should be directed to the FBI,” a release from Chief of Police Timothy O’Connor said, in part.

The FBI says, if prosecuted, he faces a maximum of five years in prison, a fine of $250,000 or both.
