November 3, 2021
A federal jury in St. Paul on Tuesday convicted former Minneapolis police officer Ty Jindra of three counts of confiscating drugs during traffic stops for his own personal use, and two counts of seizing drugs in violation of individuals' constitutional rights.
He was acquitted on six other counts.
Jindra, 29, and defense attorney Aaron Morrison bowed their heads as U.S. District Judge Donovan Frank read the verdict. Neither commented afterward.
