(PIX11) — Three Brooklyn men are getting a sweet paycheck from the city.
This comes after cops mistook Jolly Ranchers for meth and arrested them.
The NYPD agreed to hand over $33,000 to settle the lawsuit.
The arrest took place last year on Coney Island when two of the men were stopped by police after leaving a candystore.
Officers arrested them on a claim that an undercover cop saw them selling drugs.
The third person was arrested in connection to the others.
A lawyer for the police officers says they were just doing their jobs.
