macadamnut: State police spokesman David Procopio said state police could not rule out several possible scenarios that include:

• The money was not put in the safe that night, was left unattended, and was taken by someone.

•The money was placed in the safe that night, but the safe was not locked, allowing someone to take the cash.

•The cash was put in the safe and later removed by "authorized personnel for legitimate reasons," but was then left unattended and taken by someone.

Looks like they left out a couple of possible scenarios.

Since other money that was in the safe was still there, whatever DID happen to the money, it's reasonable to assume it was never put into the safe. And the way these dingdongs are acting, I can fully believe they left it on the roof of the cruiser and it blew away into the night.

SpdrJay: Maybe Fark could just start having a Police Corruption section?

There's always plenty of content.

Peek around online, there are several very busy websites devoted to the daily shenanigans of LEO's and PD's across America. Their tomfoolery, the damage to civilians & private property, the resulting law suits the tax payers will have to pony up for as well as the weeks off paid for the hard working folks in blue. It's pathetic.

--- Some years ago there was a small local PD in Sussex County NJ that had so much missing evidence and confiscated drugs that were replaced with substitutes the state stepped in, fired everyone and closed the PD. Yup. You or me would have sat in prison the rest of our lives, those guys just had to look for work in another county.

$31,370?  That's the amount of the rounding errors in a good drug operation.
