By Associated Press

NAPLES, Fla. (AP) — Police in Naples are on the lookout for cocaine(s). Somehow, they lost their stash.  (Oopsie daisies.) 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 (or their nasal cavities) but the likely spot was a hotel.  (Since when do K9 training trips involve airport rental cars and a hotel room?  Call me crazy but that sounds more like a vacation.)

 

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. (Couple holes here- if they were in a rental car at a hotel, they were probably off-duty.  Off-duty cops don’t get called to scenes unless they are part of a special unit.  Again, call me crazy, but shouldn’t both officers be fully capable of watching the agile bag of inanimate white substance.)  By the time she returned, the dogs were energetic and destroying the room.  (Energetic?  So are they implying that the dogs ate the cocaine?  They are seriously trying to play this off with “my dog ate my homework”?)

The officers said they were focusing more on straightening up the hotel room than collecting the drugs, so the bag probably got left.  (The cops got flustered because the room was torn up and as a result completely forgot about 2 grams of powpow? Isn’t staying poised and collected under pressure part of what cops are supposed to be above-average at?)

They weren’t reprimanded — supervisors say it was an honest mistake.  (Really?  That’s it?  Ok then.  Good enough for me…as long as they both promised they were telling the truth.)

Fat guy screams for McDonald’s Chicken.  Update: I don’t know why I capitalized chicken.

The caption pretty much says it all.
