Police still missing drug evidence, including thousands in cash

In June 2016, an audit revealed  74 drug exhibits were missing from Halifax Regional Police evidence, including thousands of dollars, drugs and miscellaneous items.

Today a review team made up of a sergeant and two police members presented an update to the board of Police Commissioners.

The original audit showed there was $114,000 missing. In an update in March that number was reduced to $25,000 and now police say there is only about $6,000 missing.

The meeting today also revieled the discovery of some missing drug evidence, including 741 marijuana plants, 2.96 kilograms of marijuana, .48 kilograms of cocaine and 50 steroid pills.

The expected completion date of the full audit is December 31 of this year. The Board of Police Commissioners will then be presented with the overall results of the audit, which includes recommendations, action taken, current state and any next steps.
