A New York City police detective has been convicted of lying about a drug bust after video surveillance showed a different story.

The Bronx district attorney's office says 41-year-old Debra Eager was convicted Thursday on three counts of perjury. She faces up to seven years in prison at a June 27 sentencing.

Eager had appeared before a grand jury after several people were charged with drug possession in November 2007.
 
Prosecutors say her testimony was contradicted by video surveillance tape of the arrests. All charges were dropped against the defendants.
