According to the Dallas News, Jacobs informed police about the alleged theft and steroid use by officers when he was arrested, but apparently Plano PD was waiting for him to complain formally to Internal Affairs. That's a pretty lackadaisical response to allegations by a known steroids dealer that he sold drugs to your officers!
David Jacobs says he’s ready to name names of police officers who got steroids from his network. "We as people have given them a set of authority to uphold these laws, but they are breaking them right in front of our faces," said Jacobs.
Jacobs is talking about officers in five cities: Garland, Richardson, Dallas, Arlington, and Plano. He says the Plano officers stole from him during a raid.
"And to steal money from my house, and steal steroids, and steal growth hormones from my house, then put handcuffs on me and then judge me," said Jacobs.
Plano police say Jacobs has yet to file a formal complaint with them so they have not investigated the allegations.
Federal prosecutors are investigating professional athletes.
When asked if he thought that a lot of professional athletes would be brought into this scandal, he answered: “I think this is way bigger than baseball.”
Will these allegations of steroid use by Metroplex police be investigated or swept under the rug? And will authorities express as much interest in Jacobs' police officer clients as those who are professional athletes? They should, but I doubt it.
