In Pilar, Argentina, a half-ton of pot disappeared from a police warehouse. About 13,000 pounds of bud were supposed to be in storage, but a recent police inspection revealed 1,000 pounds were missing, according to The Guardian. The city’s former police commissioner and three of his subordinates told a judge the missing mari.juana must have been eaten by mice. However, experts said rodents wouldn’t confuse pot with food, and in the off-chance they did, the mice likely would have died from it, and investigators would have found the dead mice. Eight officers were dismissed from their jobs, and will testify in front of the judge on May 4. The judge will then decide if the drugs are missing due to “expedience or negligence,” according to the BBC.
In Royal Palm Beach, Florida, a man was involved in a car crash. He told a sheriff’s deputy he had been cut off by another driver and could prove it with his dashboard camera. He then signed a consent waiver to search the camera, according to the Associated Press. However, the camera showed more than the driver wanted police to see. When the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputy reviewed the footage, he saw the man burglarizing a beauty store. Authorities say the video showed the man taking a baseball bat from the trunk and someone using the bat to break the glass door to the store. He was arrested on burglary charges.
