A detective from the Phoenix Police Department was arrested yesterday for allegedly stealing drugs from the department's evidence room.

The unidentified detective is a 12-year veteran of the force.

According to police, the detective would steal Oxycontin that was scheduled to be destroyed. As if nobody would notice, the detective would replace it with the over-the-counter pain reliever Aleve.

Cops became hip to the detective's scam after conducting a routine audit of stored evidence. They suspect that in total, the detective tampered with 83 evidence bag, and stole about 2,400 pills. Authorities say it's unclear how long the detective's been ripping off evidence rooms, but say the investigation is ongoing.

Police say it's unlikely the tampered evidence will impact any criminal cases because the drugs were scheduled to be destroyed.

The detective was arrested yesterday after handing in his letter of resignation to his superiors. He faces charges of evidence tampering, theft, and drug possession.

I'd trade Alleve for oxycodone any day! What a deal.

Seriously, one of the prerequisites for being a narc is dishonesty. My mother always taught me that one lie breeds another. If a narc will lie to, cheat, and betray a suspect, he will do just so to anyone.

Shit.......the whole P-town is corrupt. With Mayor Phil Gordon defending Jack Harris, his own son and other demagogic thugs in office. With the racist Sheriff Joke standing out above all of them. Will Phoenix now hold the most corrupt title and beat Chicago?

Not only was the evidence scheduled to be destroyed. He just "destroyed" his career.

Nonetheless, that agency is corrupt from head to toe. It needs to be cleaned up.

Btw, where's that "Class West" fool, who would normally be crying about "bad cops" and post his anti-law enforcement(but supports Shurf joe arpaio and the MSCO) website:www.badphoenixcops.com???

Not to worry, Bozo Joe Arpaio will make him a Chief, he'll fit right in with the rest of the MCSO slime.
