Argentinian officers claim mice ate 540kg of missing marijuana

Eight police officers in Argentina have been sacked after they claimed that a half a ton of marijuana that disappeared from an evidence locker was eaten by mice. Some 13,220 pounds of marijuana had been registered there two years earlier and investigators found that the total was more than half a ton short. The prime suspect appears to be former Buenos Aires police commissioner Javier Specia, who resigned from his position a year ago and did not sign the inventory on the cannabis in the warehouse.

Officials found that there were 5,460 kilograms of cannabis in the storage unit, 540 kilograms less than the amount that was supposed to be there.

His replacement, commissioner Emilio Portero, noticed the shortfall and notified the force's internal affairs division, who inspected the warehouse.

Argentine news outlets Pilar de Todos and Clarín reported that Buenos Aires' security minister Cristian Ritondo fired the officers after four told a judge that rats ate the missing pot.
