Fla. police lose bag of cocaine used to train K-9s

Associated Press

NAPLES, Fla. — Police in Naples are on the lookout for cocaine. Somehow, they lost their stash. A 2-gram packet was discovered missing this summer from a narcotics kit used in training. Two officers lost it in April, but they're unsure where. It could've been the police parking lot or an airport rental car, but the likely spot was a hotel.

The veteran pair checked out the kit to train their police dogs, but the one who usually handles the drugs was called to a scene. By the time she returned, the dogs were energetic and destroying the room.

The officers said they were focusing more on straightening up the hotel room than collecting the drugs, so the bag probably got left.

They weren't reprimanded - supervisors say it was an honest mistake.
