KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Three Kissimmee police officers are being investigated after officials say they gave false testimony in a drug case.

Kissimmee police spokeswoman Stacie Miller said Monday the three officers were relieved of duty pending the outcome of criminal and internal investigations.

Prosecutors have dropped charges against the defendant, saying the testimony given by the officers was inconsistent with surveillance video from a motel.

Officials in the State Attorney's Office said Monday they are now reviewing all cases involving the officers.

Prosecutors also have disclosed the allegations to defense attorneys in other open cases involving the officers.

Kissimmee is located south of Orlando.
