Detectives Milton Smith III and Tyrone Francis have been suspended pending an investigation by the department's internal affairs division, according to the Sun.
The accusations bear a resemblence to a stunt perpetrated by fictional Baltimore police officers in the HBO series "The Wire." In the sixth episode of the show's third season, two officers "dump" a number of young drug dealers in a wooded area well outside the city. Before driving off, the fictional officers tell the youngsters to use the North Star to find their way back to Baltimore.
The real-life teen, who is not accused of any crime, was eventually picked up by police near a gas station outside the park and driven home.
