ST-JEROME, Que. — A 911 operator has been suspended after she allegedly monitored police databases and leaked information to drug dealers.

The woman was a civilian employee at a police station in St. Jerome, Que., about 50 km northwest of Montreal.

She has been suspended with pay but has not yet been charged in a bust that netted 30 suspects in February.

She's one of two police employees who are suspected of having ties to a drug ring. The other worker has also been suspended.

It's the third major mole case to hit a Quebec police force in the last 15 months.

A police officer in Sherbrooke was suspended last month for allegedly leaking information to a Hells Angels-linked group.

In January 2012, Montreal police Sgt.-Det. Ian Davidson committed suicide after allegedly approaching the mafia to sell a list of 2,000 informants and undercover agents for $1 million.
