in Henry county, VA., the county sheriff, 12 current and former officers, a former postal worker, a former probation officer, and five others were charged today in a scheme that consisted of taking drugs seized from criminals and selling them back to the community.
H. Franklin Cassell, the sheriff of the county was quoted as saying "the only way to acquire wealth is to be a little crooked and not get caught".
Prosecuters say that for the past eight years, cocaine, marijuana, steroids, and other drugs seized were then sold back to the small community of Roanoake, VA.
Gotta love those southern boys!
