DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Federal prosecutors say a Dallas Police Department vice detective has been accused of passing unauthorized tips about police raids and investigations into prostitution.

The U.S. attorney’s office says Jose Luis Bedoy was arrested Friday on a four-count indictment. It accuses him of beginning a sexual relationship with someone authorities say is a prostitute and giving her “law enforcement-sensitive information” about raids.

Prosecutors say police in Coppell determined earlier this year that he had tipped off a raid. The FBI began investigating.

The indictment also says Bedoy, 39, told the woman to not use Backpage.com, a site sometimes linked to prostitution, during a week the vice squad was “working Backpage.”

Specifically, Bedoy faces three counts of obstruction of an official proceeding and one count of obstruction of due administration of justice.

Bedoy doesn’t have a listed phone number and couldn’t be reached for comment. A police statement says he’s on administrative leave.
