Eight Argentinian officers have been fired after they claimed that 540 kilos of weed were eaten by rats. The incident comes after a newly instated police chief ordered a full inventory of all evidence held by the police. A 6000-kilo haul of weed held in an evidence warehouse was found to be 540 kilos lighter.
The initial excuse for the missing weed was that rats had eaten it while it was in storage. The cannabis had been in storage for two years, another excuse was that in this time the weed had dried out and lost water weight.
Experts explained that no rodent would mistake cannabis for food, and if a large group of rats had eaten it, then their poisoned bodies would have been found in the warehouse. Likewise, the lost water weight isn’t plausible, due to the fact that for the cannabis to lose 540 kilos of water, it would have to have been in a submerged state to start with.
The dismissed police have been ordered to testify before the judge on 4 May. The judge will seek to determine if the missing weed is down to incompetence or something shadier.
