Posted: Updated:

MIAMI (WSVN) -- A former Miami-Dade narcotics officer is facing drug charges for his alleged involvement in a marijuana grow-house operation.

Federal authorities arrested 45-year-old Roderick Silva on Thursday. He has been charged with intent to distribute marijuana.

Officials said he also informed drug dealers of ongoing investigations to keep them one step ahead of the law.

Silva is also accused of accepting cash from those dealers in return for staying silent.

He has been suspended with pay since 2009.
