Galveston police lose more evidence in drug cases

Less than a year after guns, drugs and money went missing from a police evidence room, Galveston officials discovered more missing evidence this week from the same locked storage room.

The evidence — drugs seized in arrests over the past 12 months — could put a dozen or more court cases in jeopardy, officials said Thursday. Police Chief Charles Wiley warned that the small quantities of narcotics may turn out to be only a portion of the overall loss as investigators conduct a sweeping inventory of the disorganized evidence room.
