    A police officer has been convicted of grand larceny and other charges in a case that led to the NYPD's ticket-fixing investigation.

    Prosecutors announced the conviction of 46-year-old Jose Ramos on Monday. They say he turned his two Bronx barbershops into a front for drug dealing and stolen goods.

    Ramos still faces other charges, including conspiring to kill a witness. Information on his lawyer wasn't immediately available. He's to be sentenced Dec. 1.
