Infamous for their passionate pursuit of suspected marijuana offenders, a New Mexico officer was caught green-handed swiping a small sack of weed last week – thanks to a serious lapse in judgment and the cops own high-tech body camera.
Though cops in New Mexico have earned an ugly reputation when it comes to going the extra mile searching for marijuana among the driving population, when it comes to busting one of their own for stealing some Southwestern chronic from the police headquarters evidence locker, catching the officer was as easy as watching a video.
Omitting the extended anal probing commonly utilized by New Mexico’s inquisitive police force, and arrested last Wednesday for larceny, idiocy, and hypocrisy; Officer Roshern McKinney, 33, was caught on camera snatching a sack of cannabis from the Grants Police Station and turning over the karmic-laced herb to his girlfriend.
According to the New York Daily News, this was not the first time this cop had been caught with his hand in the cookie pot jar; officer McKinney has also been accused of pocketing nearly $800 in confiscated drug money and nearly a 1/2-pound of marijuana that mysteriously went missing from the police station evidence locker.
