MET COP GREG SIMPSON told reporters how colleagues smoked cannabis, took ecstasy tablets and cocaine from bundles that were kept in the evidence lockers. he said ' now that I have left the force there is nothing to stop me telling you that we used to take the drugs off the kids and keep it for ourselves.
When things were a bit thin on the ground we'd organise a locker raid, but one had to be discreet and careful.' I used to smoke cannabis at the police section house and nobody really cared. I became quite addicted to the drugs and in the end there were a number of cops who regularly stole and took bribes to get a fix.
The top brass never knew, even though they often claim they know everything, it's rubbish really, we always dodged them and kept it between a few of us. I was never caught doing drugs, but I was caught drink/driving and left the force voluntarily.'
