Maryland's top cop Marilyn Mosby was indicted for lying on mortgage loan applications for two vacation properties she purchased in Florida.

Mosby, a Democrat, was indicted by a federal grand jury on two counts of perjury and making false statements on mortgage loan applications, Yahoo News reported. The indictment was unsealed on Thursday.

The indictment alleges the mom-of-two lied about experiencing "adverse financial consequences" during the pandemic in 2020.

Federal prosecutors say her gross salary of nearly $250,000 increased by nearly $10,000 between 2019 and 2020.

The indictment also alleges that Mosby lied on a COVID relief application. She claimed she lost income during the pandemic and received $36,000, which she used "toward a down payment for a vacation home in Kissimmee Florida" in September 2020.

The indictment accuses Mosby of lying on applications for mortgages of nearly $500,000 for the Kissimmee, Florida, home and a nearly $430,000 mortgage for a condominium in Long Boat Key, Florida.

Mosby faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison for each count of perjury and a maximum of 30 years for each count of making false mortgage applications.

Mosby, 41, gained notoriety in 2015 for prosecuting five Baltimore police officers who arrested 25-year-old Freddie Gray in 2015.

Gray was found unresponsive in the back of a paddy wagon. He was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

The five officers were eventually acquitted of all charges.

A Baltimore judge acquitted former Baltimore cop Edward Nero on all charges in the April 19, 2015 death of Freddie Gray.

The judge ruled that there were no "credible facts" to support Nero's involvement in Gray's death. The judge's decision came as a relief to Nero's supporters who believe he was a political pawn in the racially charged case.

“Heads up,” Mosby wrote. “National media is focusing on me.”

“You’ll be all right,” Linda Thompson, a retired Baltimore police officer, replied.
