Guns in police custody fell into criminal hands
Audit sealed for years also shows drugs missing
February 26, 2007
I has the misfortune of being detailed to ERPS while recovering from an IOD (light duty) in the late 90's. When I had arrived the drug theft cases had already occurred. I worked in the drug vault and had routinely found drug bags misfiled. I would be willing to bet that a large portion of missing drugs was due to an archaic filing system and not necessarily theft.
Working in that place was one of the worst experiences I have yet to encounter on this job. Definitely a motivator to return to work.
