BRANTFORD -- A now-suspended city cop was caught on a police surveillance video smoking crack cocaine and snorting the painkiller oxycodone in his cruiser while on duty in 2007.
Jeffrey Glen Servos, 31, pleaded guilty yesterday in Ontario Court to one count of possession of a controlled substance.
The sentencing date has not been set.
Servos also faces charges under the Police Services Act. He remains suspended with pay.
An agreed statement of facts filed with the court indicated that surveillance showed Servos snorting a prescription painkiller and smoking crack cocaine in his cruiser while on duty the night of June 20, 2007.
The statement of facts detailed Servos' addiction problems, as known to city police, dating to 2005. According to the statement, Servos confided his drug dependency to superior officers three times, and each time sought counselling and treatment.
