Paris policeman charged after cocaine goes missing
By The Associated Press
PARIS - A Paris police officer is facing preliminary charges related to the disappearance of 52.6 kilograms (116 lbs) of cocaine from the police headquarters' evidence room.
Prosecutor's office spokeswoman Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre says the unidentified anti-narcotics officer faces charges including transport, possession and sale of narcotics and covering up a drug ring.
The cocaine has not been found. It had been held in a locked room at the Paris police headquarters just steps from the Notre Dame Cathedral and was reported missing on July 31.
The suspect has denied the charges, according to French press reports. They said the cocaine has a street value of 2 million euros ($2.7 million).
