Officer faces charge after drugs allegedly tossedApril 3, 2019
By The Associated Press
PRINCETON — Authorities say a southwestern Indiana police officer allowed a drug trafficking suspect to discard a bag of heroin before being taken to a police station.
Indiana State Police say 28-year-old Princeton Officer Brandt George is free on bond after being charged with official misconduct.
The Associated Press left a message Tuesday seeking comment from a lawyer listed as representing George.
State police say Drug Enforcement Administration officers on Feb. 5 were investigating drug trafficking along U.S. Route 41 and learned two people allegedly in possession of illegal drugs were in the area. The DEA sought help from Princeton police and George stopped the vehicle.
State police say one suspect had 77 grams of heroin inside his pants that ended up being tossed. Other officers later recovered the drugs.
