According to eight police officers in Pilar, Argentina, a group of mice is to blame for over 1,000 pounds of weed that recently went missing from a police warehouse.
A total of 13,000 pounds of marijuana were supposed to be held in storage but recent inventory revealed that over 1,000 pounds had gone missing.
Javier Specia, former police commissioner in Pilar was brought before a judge to answer for the missing contraband. Specia’s response? He along with three subordinate officers told the skeptical judge the missing marijuana must have been consumed by mice in the building.
However, experts that were brought in to consult on the case debunked that theory quickly, explaining that rodents would not confuse the weed with some type of food. Even in the unlikely chance that they had, some of the mice certainly would have been killed from the marijuana consumption and dead mice and/or remnants would have been found in the storage facility.
All eight of the officers who have been implicated have been relieved from their positions and will testify before a judge on May 4th. The judge will then make a determination on whether the officers or the rats are to blame.
