Eight Argentinian police officers have found themselves in a puddle of hot shit, as they’re copping some flack for half a ton marijuana that’s gone missing from the evidence locker due to being “eaten by mice”.
The weed – which had been discovered to be mysteriously half a ton underweight during an inspection of a police warehouse – had been in storage for a couple of years and had been registered at a whopping 6,000 kg.
All signs pointed to the city’s previous commissioner Javier Specia, who left his post in 2017 and for some reason, left the kush unaccounted for.
His replacement seemed to notice something fishy, or he smelt his officers smashing cones and decided he should probably investigate.
Called before a judge, three officers were adamant that “mice had eaten it”, which is the excuse I use when I realise I went through 3/4 of my stash in a night.
According to forensics, that explanation doesn’t even make sense as there’s no way mice would be foolish enough to think that weed is food.
“Buenos Aires University experts have explained that mice wouldn’t mistake the drug for food and that if a large group of mice had eaten it, a lot of corpses would have been found in the warehouse,” said a spokesperson for the judge.
The four police officers have to go back and testify, but if they manage to get off with only losing their job in exchange for half a ton of dank, well sign me the fuck up.
