Acting United States Attorney Bruce D. Brandler for the Middle District of Pennsylvania; Acting Assistant Attorney General Nicholas L. McQuaid of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division; Special Agent in Charge Michael J. Driscoll of the FBI’s Philadelphia Field Office; and Special Agent in Charge Russell W. Cunningham of the U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General’s Washington Field Office announced Friday that a federal jury convicted a veteran detective for the Carlisle Police Department, who was also a task force officer with the FBI and a member of the Cumberland County Drug Task Force, of bribery, drug distribution and making false statements.

According to court documents and evidence presented at trial, Christopher Collare, 53, of Blythewood, South Carolina, used his official position to obtain sex from two women in exchange for agreeing to take actions in prosecutions. Specifically, in 2015, Collare agreed to accept sex in exchange for not appearing at an evidentiary hearing so that a criminal charge would be dismissed.
