...  the money went missing between April 2010 and May 2011, and the apparent thefts were possible because of lapses in security and record-keeping.

That's some damn fine police work there, Lou.

They most likely stole the money from an ordinary American citizen to begin with, so I don't see the big deal.

Wait this didn't happen in Gwinnett county.

Good one, subby.
 
2013-09-30 01:50:17 PM
Fer crying out loud, how are we gonna win wars on drugs and stuff if you guys keep losing the money?
 
2013-09-30 01:50:33 PM
Estimated street value of the $1,500 is around $1.5 million.
 
2013-09-30 01:51:22 PM
That there is drug money until proven different.
The traffic light money was in a different place.
 
2013-09-30 01:51:36 PM
probably went and bought 150.00 worth of drugs
 
2013-09-30 01:52:35 PM
Only $1,500 missing? Amateurs.

Yes, but it was probably legitimately seized from a criminal organization and earned through illegal activities.  I realize the stories of cops robbing honest folk are getting a lot of airtime right now but the kind of money they can steal is still largely drug and murder money.  If only because drugs and murder are the largest "cash-only" businesses out there.

In that case, just let it go, man. Cause it's gone.

All these thousands of crooked cops are making the 3 or 4 good ones look bad.

This joke was old back in April 2010 - May 2011...

Since cops want to act like militarized thugs, I say we go full gonzo and let them.
Roll police forces into the National Guard. That way they don't have to play soldier, they are soldiers. Of course they would fall under the UCMJ as well.

Every business transaction involving poor people is "cash-only". Asset forfeiture targets people who are carrying cash and lack legal representation, not criminal organizations.

Amateurs, there actually is 15k missing from my local PD - and the kicker is that the money is evidence in a murder, as in it's got blood stains on it. State Police took over the investigation a while ago so hopefully they'll figure it out...

My neighbor's daughter was driving past our house and noticed a wad of cash in the street.  This is the same day that the scrappers from other neighborhoods raid our trash cans and cut cables off of electronics announced in curb alerts or stuff that has free signs on it.  So probably one of the scrappers dropped it.

She comes up on the porch with $220 and asks my wife and I what to do.  I told her to hang on to it and if nobody in the neighborhood reports it after a month to add it to her college fund.  We all know each other so all of the neighbors on the street were asked about it.  So instead she took it to the cops.  30 days later she calls them.  Policy is if nobody comes in and it can't be identified it gets put in the police fund.  Cash of course can't be identified.  I told her and her dad they should fight it but they didn't want to cause trouble.

Police motto is "To protect and serve." Yeah, protect and serve themselves.

She filled out the paperwork and got a copy.  But they told her their policy on cash is that it can't be identified so they get to keep it.

We've lived here since 98.  Population and crime has barely increased.  Violent is down, citations are up. Population from 40K to 44K.  Crime rate 0.09%.  The police force has nearly tripled and many of the officers run around in new interceptor sport utility vehicles.

Gee, if only there were some way to identify cash.

Your police department is full of shiat. Money probably went to buy donuts. Or hookers and blow.

I'm sure they'll get right on that.

Right.
On.
It.

Yup... anytime...

Danger Avoid Death: Your police department is full of shiat. Money probably went to buy donuts. Or hookers and blow.


Oh, I agree.  I watched them turn from being a decent department to one that is all about traffic citations, harassing kids for curfew, and acquiring new toys.  The citation increases were all mostly curfew and traffic from the stats.  Five years ago I'd bet they would give the finder her keepers.

WTF is the "police fund"?  As far as I know if you find cash on the sidewalk, even if you hand it to the cops, if there are no claimers the money is the finder's.

Then when you get the money back you can donate it to a real cause.

Meh the money is long since spent , just let it go and not throw good money after bad, better to beef of record keeping security to prevent a reoccurance.
 
2013-09-30 04:37:50 PM
So they have an evidence locker that they know has been tampered with. Yet some how all of the remaining items are still good for trial? They can't even name the dates that it was tampered on? The excuse is poor record keeping going back how many years?
 
2013-09-30 07:11:52 PM
More likely $1500 missing from evidence, DA files charges for entire $150, police chief offers to pay back all $1.50 of it out of his own pocket - does and gets chief of the year award.
 
2013-09-30 08:33:34 PM
Georgia cops = crooked shysters who belong in jail, or shot.
 
2013-09-30 10:24:49 PM
Normally I would say $1500 is not that much.

But then again if someone not involved with the police stole $1500 felony charges would probably be involved....(unless a bank was directly involved).

So f**k the police, I want to see this looked into and felony charges pressed.
