ARGENTINIAN COPS FIRED AFTER BLAMING MISSING MARIJUANA ON MICE
Eight Argentinian cops have lost their jobs after asserting that mice had eaten a greater part a huge amount of marijuana which vanished from a police warehouse.
The vanishing of the medications was discovered in the town of Pilar, is 60 km outside the capital city of Buenos Aires, amid an investigation of a police warehouse for confiscated drugs.
The cannabis spent up to two years in the police warehouse. Just 5,460kg of marijuana was found out of a total of 6,000kg that had been enlisted.
The main suspect was Javier Specia who was former police commissioner, he is said to have left the stock for the seized marijuana unsigned when he retired from his post in April 2017.
Commissioner Emilio Portero who stepped in after Javier’s retirement, saw the deficit and informed the the police force department of internal affairs, who investigated the warehouse.
Specia and three of his subordinates were taken to court to face Judge Adrián González Charvay, when Specia and three of his subordinates were asked about the missing cannabis, they all offered a similar clarification, stating that the missing drugs had been “eaten by mice”.
Yet it was a doubt to many scientific specialists who told the court that its very doubtful that rodents could have eaten so much marijuana, even if they rodents were in a large amount they couldn’t have eaten up to that quantity.
A spokesperson for the judge spoke on how experts in the Buenos Aires University have clarified that mice wouldn’t confuse cannabis for food, and that if a vast gathering of mice had eaten it, a great deal of death rats would have been found in the warehouse.
On the 4th of may, the four cops will have to testify before the judge. It is at that point where the judge will try to decide whether the missing marijuana was the aftereffect of “expedience or negligence”.
There is another charge Specia has to face which includes an internal police investigation concerning why he has not yet exhibited his sworn income statement for 2017.
