A New Mexico police sergeant has reportedly landed himself in hot water after getting arrested for illegally taking marijuana from his office and giving it to his girlfriend.
According to KOB-TV in Albuquerque, USA, the officer Sgt. Roshern McKinne of Grants police department was allegedly caught through a lapel camera he himself had on.
The officer is said to be facing charges of ‘distribution of marijuana, conspiracy and felony embezzlement’ after he allegedly pilfered $785 and an 8-ounce brick of marijuana by not submitting it to the department’s evidence vault.
KOB-TV reports that McKinney was arrested on Wednesday, August 24, 2016 after an investigation was launched in July following the discovery of the video recording.
McKinne has however been released and sent on paid leave while authorities further investigate, according to KOB-TV.
