Part-Time PA Police Officer Charged with Drug Offenses
Have you ever bought illegal drugs? What have you done to score the drugs that you wanted? Have you ever thought about the ways in which drugs and drug money can cause people to be corrupted? Do you think some people should be held to a higher standard when it comes to drug offenses, or do you think going to a drug rehab center is enough? Anyone can give in to the temptation of drugs, even if they are in a position of authority. For example, a part-time police officer in Pennsylvania was recently arrested for trying to buy prescription painkillers-while on duty.
The man had bought what he thought was an OxyContin pill while he was in uniform, and while using an Ambridge, PA police car. It bring up the question of whether this was his first time using police equipment to buy drugs. According to the Pennsylvania Attorney General's office, "He is charged with one count of attempt possession of one placebo oxycontin pill, one count of the attempt possession roxycontin, Vicodin and Percocet pills, one count of criminal conspiracy to commit obstructing law or other governmental function and one count of hindering apprehension." His bail has been set at $25,000.
