Eight Argentinian police officers are looking for work after they were caught in a lie that involved a half-ton of missing marijuana and the mice that allegedly ate it.
The disappearance of the missing half-ton prompted an investigation, which revealed that the impressive weed stash -which had sat for two years in police storage- had lost quite a bit of weight.
Former Pilar Police Commissioner Javier Specia was one of the initial suspects, along with three officers who served under him until he left his post in April of last year.
Specia and his cronies were called before Judge Adrián González Charvay, who all claimed the weed had been “eaten by mice.”
However, forensics experts claimed that it would be near impossible for even a small army of mice to have eaten the substance.
“Buenos Aires University experts have explained that mice wouldn’t mistake the drug for food, and that if a large group of mice had eaten it, a lot of corpses would have been found in the warehouse,” a legal spokesperson told The Guardian.
Specia, who also faces a separate internal investigation, will go before the judge with his three friends next month, when it will be determined whether their actions were out of negligence or expedience.
