Pa. police suspect pot in cop's car was 'prank'



Published: Fri, November 2, 2012 @ 9:40 a.m.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh police believe a small plastic bag of pot found in the narcotics commander’s car was left there as a prank — but they don’t appreciate the joke.

Assistant Chief George Trosky says the drugs were found after police picked up the car early last month from a garage that cleans and details city police cars.

Police aren’t identifying the garage because it services undercover vehicles, but Trosky says police believe an employee put the drugs in Cmdr. Cheryl Doubt’s car as a joke.

Although the garage wasn’t told it was Doubt’s service vehicle, police say the workers would have known it was used for narcotics work.

Trosky says, if nothing else, the incident will likely change how the city contracts for car-washing services.

No one has been charged in the incident.
