He didn't even try the 'I was doing a sting' defense?

Job stress defense, he'll get 2 years probation and keep his retirement

I hate the whole "cops steal things out of evidence."  I never worked in a department where that was possible.  Evidence was locked down, and only a couple of people could get in there.

Now stealing stuff before you turned it into evidence...

you can buy cocaine online?  interesting.

I feel sorry for the guy. There should be a place like Vegas so you can do or snort whatever, then just go home and back to the normal job. With the laced with fentanyl so many people are harmed.
But on the other hand he should have known better. I mean he is trained to know better.

In Portugal everything is legal. They just don't have the problems we create. You just don't hear about 60 shootings in Libson on a weekend. Whats up with that?

There's nothing to get, police get caught stealing from lockers frequently enough: https://www.google.com/search​?q=steali​ng+evidence&oq=stealing+evidence
Here's a few from this year:
https://www.chron.com/news/houston-te​x​as/article/Texas-police-chief-tamperin​g-evidence-merkel-13089007.php The ex-police chief of a small Texas town near Abilene was arrested on Thursday after allegedly stealing $867 dollars from his department's evidence vault.
https://fox43.com/2018/03/22/former-p​o​lice-officer-charged-after-allegedly-s​tealing-from-evidence-locker/ A former Lower Swatara Township Police Department officer is being charged by the Dauphin County District Attourney's Office for allegedly stealing drugs from an evidence locker at the Lower Swatara Township Police Department.
http://www.ktre.com/story/38115376/tr​i​nity-dispatcher-arrested-for-stealing-​meth-out-of-evidence-found-dead Jones said the meth was brought into evidence on April 25 following an arrest. Police noticed it missing Thursday after they tried to retrieve it to mail it to DPS for testing.

You'd think a police chief might have the special access needed, but if a dispatcher can steal from evidence, well...

How does having a physical key assist in an online purchase?

Obviously he thought he was merely signing up for clown college...

Hell, shake down a dealer... but don't leave a trail of evidence.  Don't people learn from their occupations?

Resigned not fired so he still can be a cop some place else.

Different agencies different rules, and that is part of the problem.  The dispatcher, since there is one in the station 24/7 might also act as the evidence control guy.  I think most of this stuff happens in agencies with less than 20 people, where rules may not be as formerly enforced, or conversely, very large agencies that have hundreds of cops, meaning that instead of two or three guys controlling evidence, you have dozens of people with access, creating potential for stuff to vanish.

Most places I worked, the Chief of Detectives and maybe one other guy had access, and there was a drop box, much like a bank drop box, that you could drop evidence in after hours.  It's not just preventing theft, you are supposed to have a chain of custody for evidence to be admissible, with a log showing who had custody of it along every point of the way, for court.  So having too many people being able to get in and out of the evidence area, is insane.

All that said, as I have noted there are small agencies where this does not happen, and if your local police station is a single or double wide, you are probably not going to have the bank vault setup.

Sadly, the main reason i don't do coke is because i wouldn't have the first inkling of how to get it.  I'll cross "dark web" off the list.

Your original post made it sound to me like you couldn't fathom why the stereotype existed. That's what I replied to.

lizyrd: Can someone explain why a 40-mile stretch of highway rates its own dedicated police department?


40 chances for each officer to write a ticket every hour, is why. Also, it's New Jersey, corruption is a way of life there, and only the stupid get caught.

I signed up for Instagram believing it to be an online cocaine delivery service.

I did a little further reading. They only patrol an 11 mile stretch, New York State Police do the NY side. They have 28 sworn guys to do it; figure a command staff of 4 and 4 shifts, you have six guys on-duty at any time.

They once arrested an NYPD Deputy Commissioner, and like to pull over Hasidic ambulances. It sure seems like a make-work, revenue generation machine populated by assholes.

Sure sounds like it.

BTW, why are Hasidic ambulances interesting?   Asking for a friend.
