Police Officers Fired After Claiming Mice Ate Half a Ton of Missing Cannabis

If you give a mouse a cookie, he’s going to ask for a glass of milk. If you blame half a ton of impounded cannabis that’s gone missing on said mouse, it probably won’t go over well with the judge.

Eight officers near Buenos Aires, Argentina, were let go after they claimed that weed missing from their warehouse had been eaten by hungry rodents.

According to the cops, mice ate 540 kilograms of confiscated cannabis that was supposed to be in storage for the past two years, according to a report by the Guardian. That’s more than 1,000 pounds of marijuana. The discrepancy was discovered during a warehouse inspection for impounded drugs in Pilar, just over 30 miles from Buenos Aires. There should have been 6,000 kilograms stored in the police warehouse, but only 5,460 could be accounted for.

When former police commissioner Javier Specia was questioned about the missing drugs, he and his three subordinates claimed mice ate the weed. All 1,000 pounds of it.

It’s highly unlikely that there were mice running around making little mice edibles. Forensic experts from Buenos Aires University debunked Specia’s theory. A spokesperson for the judge in this case told the Guardian that “mice wouldn’t mistake the drug for food” and that if they had eaten such large quantities of marijuana, “a lot of corpses would have been found in the warehouse.”

Specia and his three subordinates will testify before a judge on May 4, when the judge will determine whether they lost the drugs because of “expedience or negligence.”

As for the high little mice running around with the missing drugs, as Specia claims, we hope they’re having a great time.
