Abner Wilkins says
Members of a Pierce County sheriff’s drug unit are being investigated for possibly violating seven department protocols, including falsifying records and conducting improper searches.
In two cases, the potential wrongdoing resulted in criminal charges being dismissed against accused drug traffickers.
The drug unit’s personnel insist they’ve done nothing wrong and say the investigation was launched because of clashes with the Pierce County Prosecutor’s Office.
The 13-member Special Investigation Unit was disbanded April 21 for what officials called an administrative review after deputy prosecutors, deputies and detectives raised questions about the drug unit’s practices and procedures.
Ten members, including former supervisor Lt. Cynthia Fajardo, have been placed on the prosecutors’ “potential impeachment recurring witness list,” which means information that calls into question their credibility must be turned over to defense attorneys.
Although an investigation into their behavior is ongoing, the names have already been added to the list.
Joseph Boyle says
Mr. Abner Wilkins,
What you say is true. There is an investigation.
I wish to remind my readers that in America everyone is innocent until proven guilty.
We must wait before passing final judgment on any of these issues until the investigation has been completed.
I can tell you this. There has been bad blood between the Pierce County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office and some high caliber members of the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.
I will be shocked and surprised if a true, accurate, and complete investigation indicates Cyndie Fajardo has committed any wrongdoing.
Thanks for sharing what you know.
