That's barely even news.

"They're stealing our stolen money!"

Cry me a river.

This is a sheer betrayal and disgrace of the sacred oaths taken by those who wear a badge and were involved in these appalling acts

You expected cops to be honest? Jesus you are stupid.

Also, cops were not the only people with access, now were they? I suspect the prosecutor may have had something to do with it. Perhaps we should perform a search on her car, home and possessions and take all monies thought to be part of the crime. I think there's a law on the books that would allow that. You don't even have to charge her. You charge the money. That evil, recidivist money.

Better call the cops....wait a second..

Time for some reverse cop math.

"Over $10,000 was stolen from evidence!"

Later: "We successfully recovered all three thousand of the dollars."

Cleaning crew blamed in 5, 4, 3, 2 .....

It would be ironic if the cops spent it all on drugs.

I would be smarter, I'd spend it all on teenage hookers and let them spend it on drugs.

Thats money laundering 101, folks.

The next thing you will say is the police body cam evidence in a crucial case suddenly disappeared.

Obviously not as they locked it in safes

If they trusted the cops they wouldnt need to do that. The last line of the article also suggests a conspiracy between multiple parties

With no evidence, the accused are free to go, right?

/If only it worked that way...

Simple solution, flag the serial numbers for the bills (because you know they wrote those down somewhere) in "the system" that tracks all dollars in circulation and arrest the guilty party immediately while they're at the gas station using the stolen money for a bag of fritos and a coca cola.

Of course.  It was kept in the same locker. With all the copies.

Why am I not shocked that they didn't have security cameras on the safe(s)...

"Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?"

No one, no one watches the watchmen.

welp you can immediately focus in on those few who had access tot he means to open the safes.   Check those folks for signs of financial distress  and you would  find your likely suspect.  Work outward from there if things look like they weren't in on it alone .

After that revamp security for how that cash is stored and cut down the number of folks who can access it.

Yet it has a 7.6 on imdb.

But seriously, this should be a slam dunk.  There has to be a written chain of custody and a limited number of people with access to the safe.

/Right?
//Right??

Not like the government was going to do any good with it.

"We questioned and found every one of them to be carrying money.  They couldn't prove it wasn't stolen money, so we sized all of it."

That's not drug money, its seized money from suspected drug activity.  Which is what they call all money and assets. That needs to stop.  I used to think it was a good idea but its abused.

Maybe the money made a break for it?
I mean, if they can charge the money of a crime and "arrest" the money...then maybe the money might escape if it had the chance.
 
2021-04-08 12:38:49 AM  
It's nice that the people who stole the money have opened an investigation.  I'm looking forward to them arresting themselves.
