After “eating” what was allegedly a seized cannabis edible, the two officers are said to have become separated. One phoned an off-duty colleague who mistook the call for it being a kidnapping and put out a call for backup.
Officers from four divisions, all buzzed in there to assist. At first they could not find either colleague. Seems the male officer was not on the ground.
Toronto Police officers are investigating the incident, including whether this was a joint venture, or if one provided something to the other without that officer’s knowledge.
While many on and off the job made jokes about “an evidence bag of Doritos” at the scene, and teased it would be best to “at least wait until you’re home,” others told the Toronto Sun this is a very troubling matter.
“It’s so embarrassing,” said one veteran officer. “We are arresting kids and seizing profits and product from businesses and this is how some officers (allegedly) act.”
