    Prosecutors say a New York police officer has been convicted of lying about how he and a sergeant got information that led to a drug-and-gun bust.

    Michael Carsey was convicted Thursday of perjury and false-filing charges. Another Manhattan jury deadlocked on those charges and acquitted him of some others last fall.

    Carsey's lawyer didn't immediately return a call. He's said the 31-year-old Carsey was swept up in a case aimed at his partner, Sgt. William Eiseman.

    In June, Eiseman admitted lying to cover up unjustified street stops and seizures and illegally searching cars.

    Carsey was accused of backing up Eiseman's bogus claims that a man told them about drugs and guns in his apartment. Prosecutors say the officers actually gleaned the information from improperly perusing pictures on the man's iPhone.
