An NYPD sergeant who helps oversee security at Gracie Mansion and once worked in First Lady Chirlane McCray’s personal detail tested positive for marijuana and has been suspended.
Sgt. Tracy Gittens, a 12-year department veteran, had originally joined McCray’s detail as a detective when Bill de Blasio became mayor, sources said.
Then Gittens was promoted to sergeant, which meant she had to return to working a precinct patrol, as is protocol, sources said.
But Gittens, 42, who lives in Queens, wanted to get back to her cushy post with the de Blasios, so she used her connections with McCray to get reassigned to Gracie, sources said.
The sergeant ran into trouble when she was recently randomly selected for drug testing and the positive results came back around 9 p.m. Monday, sources said.
She was immediately suspended without pay.
Gittens has denied to higher-ups that she smoked pot, sources said.
