Police: Former Clerk Made $200K From Stolen Drugs
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — New court documents say a fired East Baton Rouge Parish Clerk of Court's Office employee charged with allegedly stealing 22 kilograms of cocaine from an evidence vault turned a hefty profit of more than $200,000 in distributing the drug.
The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1eOUEw7) a search warrant says most of the money William Bates Colvin made was earned during a four-month period and remains unaccounted for.
Colvin, the son of state District Judge Kay Bates, was indicted with five co-defendants last month on a raft of charges stemming from the stolen cocaine.
