Two former Goodyear cops accused of stealing edible marijuana

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (KSAZ) -  Two former Goodyear Police officers now working at a shipping company are accused of stealing edible marijuana from a shipping company where investigators say they worked as security guards.

David Bryant and Eric Whittington are both former Goodyear Police Department officers. They are now facing charges of drug possession for sale and theft.

They resigned from the department in 2011 and 2013 respectively and have been working security at Ontrac shipping.

The company called police Thursday saying they caught the two on tape stealing marijuana-infused chocolate that had been delivered to the company.

Investigators found 20 pounds of edible marijuana in Whittington's home and found text messages between the two talking about selling it.

"This particular company placed approximately 50 pounds worth of cannabis laced chocolate into an evidence room; they were in the process of calling police about this package when they noticed these two employees went into the evidence room and came out with two backpacks, and they presumably had taken some of the items," said Sgt. Steve Martos.

The general manager of Holistic Center, a licensed dispensary, says they never ship their product or get it shipped. Instead, they pick it up or have a licensed dispensary agent deliver it.

"My thought process behind it is ultimately it's still federally illegal to sell, distribute, manufacture, transport all those items. Anything medically infused, unless you carry a state licensed medical dispensary card or unless you are a patient is illegal," said Dan Hayden.

Whittington told police he took the chocolate because his employer told him to dispose of it. FOX 10 reached out to Ontrac for comment but have not heard back. Police estimate the chocolate pot was worth about $2,500.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.
