“The mice ate the marijuana” was the explanation given by Argentinian policemen who have been dismissed from the force over the vanishing of 1200 pounds of weed.
This took place in Pinar, a town that is about 40 miles from Buenos Aires the capital city.
Here, the officers in blue, who were tasked with the duty of protecting a warehouse full of drugs, maintained their innocence while claiming that mice had made away with half a ton of weed.
You see, 2 years earlier, authorities had registered about 13,220 pounds of marijuana.
Only to find out that half a ton of weed was missing.
Meanwhile, forensic scientists have said that there is no way a large number of mice could consume that much cannabis.
The judge, through his spokesman, has said, “Buenos Aires University experts have explained that mice wouldn’t mistake the drug for food and that if a large group of mice had eaten it, a lot of corpses would have been found in the warehouse.”
This shortage of the said marijuana was first discovered by the new police commissioner, who in turn reported his findings to the internal affairs division.
The judge would sit sometime next month, to decide whether or not that excuse is a valid one or whether the policemen were just careless.
But although the internal affairs investigators had said that mice couldn’t have done that much damage, officers in Wichita have said that rodents have bitten through evidence bags to consume marijuana in them. This is according to USA Today.
