A sheriff in Ohio apparently impersonated a DEA agent in order to steal drugs from other agencies’ evidence rooms.
According to Raw Story: “A group of Ohio police chiefs claim that a local sheriff stole drugs from their departments, falsely claiming that he was collecting the illegal substances for disposal by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). The police chiefs also claim that state officials stalled an investigation into the matter for political reasons.”
For whatever reason, the agency that’s supposed to investigate this kind of thing, the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, has so far expressed no interest in pursuing the case.
“BCI has been given ample time and opportunity, more chances to conduct an investigation than we ever get in cases,” Gibsonburg Police Chief Paul Whitaker said. “And then we start to get word that possibly the police chiefs are assisting some way in covering up for Sheriff Overmyer, which is bullshit.”
