Cops In Toronto Steal $6,000 from perp, Judge tosses case

Cops bust drug dealer, seized cash, not all of it made it to court.

But an eagle eyed Justice put police on notice by granted a stay of proceedings.

Before pre-trial proceedings were initiated, the defence took the additional step of asking Toronto police to conduct an internal investigation into the alleged theft. The Professional Standards Unit complied with the request and investigated, but found the allegations were unsubstantiated.
