Smoke 'Em If You Seize 'Em

by TChris

Turns out that the old saying is true: cops have the best drugs.

For months, police officers in Weatherly complained of drugs that had been seized from suspects and then disappeared, of the unmistakable reek of marijuana smoke in the office and of finding pipes and other paraphernalia left in a desk drawer.

The target of their complaints was their boss — Police Chief Brian Cara. On Wednesday, he was arrested by state authorities and accused of using seized drugs while on duty.

It may have been more prudent to take the weed home rather than toking at work. It seems the chief began lighting up a half hour after the start of his 7:00 a.m. shift. Did he really think his subordinates wouldn't notice?
