Arkansas Task Force Cop Steals Drug Buy Money

Another reminder, if one were necessary, that drug task force scandals aren't just a Texas problem: Sgt. Curtis Sinor, previously a trusted officer in the 14th Judicial District Drug Task Force in Baxter County, Arkansas, recently admitted to stealing more than $8,000 that was budgeted for confidential informant payments and giving it to family members.

In similar news, in Missouri earlier this month, a secretary at the Mineral Area Drug Task Force was arrested for stealing between $25,000 and $75,000 in task force funds.
