Following the disappearance of more than half a tonne of cannabis seized in Argentina, police officers questioned on the subject explained that the drug had been eaten by mice. They have been dismissed.
A year ago, a police commissioner “freshly” appointed to Pilar, near the Argentine capital Buenos Aires, discovered during a control of seized cannabis stocks that 540 kilograms of marijuana had literally disappeared, explains The Guardian.
Asked by their hierarchy, the police officers in charge of monitoring the stock explained that mice had certainly eaten it. Yes, mice would have eaten more than 500 kilograms of cannabis.
Experts from the University of Buenos Aires said that rodents could not have eaten so much without finding dead bodies in the warehouse where the drugs were stored.
The policemen were presented to a judge in early May. While awaiting their judgment, they were dismissed.
