East Baton Rouge Police: Stolen Cocaine Cannot Be Recovered
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Police say they cannot find out what happened to the 22 kilograms of cocaine recently stolen from the East Baton Rouge Parish clerk of court's evidence vault.
Police Chief Dewayne White said Monday two former clerk of court employees were among the five people arrested last week in the case.
District Attorney Hillar Moore said his office will suggest auditing that evidence room and reviewing all policies for receiving criminal evidence, including possibly adopting a barcode scanning system to track evidence.
The Advocate reports the lock system at the vault also has been changed.
Moore said as far as investigators can tell, no other evidence is missing from the vault.
