No charges in New Bedford police missing drug case

Posted: Updated:

NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (AP) - The Bristol district attorney's office has decided not to bring charges in the disappearance of 50 Percocet pills from New Bedford police headquarters.

The disappearance last November led to the resignation of a 19-year veteran of the department.

A spokesman for the district attorney said the office investigated the facts and circumstances of the incident and found there was not enough evidence to bring charges. But he added that if additional evidence is uncovered, the case could be revisited.

The narcotic painkillers disappeared from a locker used to keep detainees' property.

Chief David Provencher tells The Standard-Times he's satisfied with the district attorney's findings.

He says the department has since tightened the inventory of property and shortened the time it is in police custody.
