A pair of former Philadelphia police officers have been ordered to spend at least 10 years in prison after being caught trying to rob a drug dealer.

31-year-old Sean Alivera was sentenced to 10 to 20 years in state prison plus 5 years probation. 24-year-old Christopher Luciano was sentenced to 10 to 20 years in state prison plus 7 years probation.

Authorities say the officers took $3,000 from the undercover officer's vehicle and conspired with a group of drug dealers to resell marijuana seized in the stop.

Both men pleaded guilty in April to charges including robbery, kidnapping and conspiracy.
