When Connecticut banned the sale of sodas in public schools back in 2006, it opened up a lucrative black market – which just so happened to be operated by members of the West Haven Police Department.
WHPD School Resource Officers Kim DeMayo and Doug Bauman were caught selling sodas to the kids at West Haven High, sparking controversy over the unauthorized sale of fizzy drinks.
According to WNTH, the department initially found out about the sales in early 2015, but the agency handled the incident internally.
“When the administration found out the officers were selling soda, their supervisors were immediately contacted, and put an end to it,” Superintendent Neil Cavallaro said in a statement. We work very closely with the West Haven Police Department. I have been assured the matter was handled, and am confident nothing similar will happen in the future.”
The incident has only recently been made public, and it is unknown how long the practice went on.
Police Chief John Karajanis declined to comment on the matter.
