Cop who made pot brownies will avoid charges
DEARBORN, Mich. - A police officer will avoid criminal charges despite admitting he took marijuana from criminal suspects and, with his wife, baked it into brownies.
The police departmentâ€™s decision not to pursue a case against former Cpl. Edward Sanchez left a bad taste in the mouth of at least one city official, who vowed to investigate.
â€œIf youâ€™re a cop and youâ€™re arresting people and youâ€™re confiscating the marijuana and keeping it yourself, thatâ€™s bad. Thatâ€™s real bad,â€ said City Councilman Doug Thomas.
Sanchez, who resigned last year from the department in this Detroit suburb, declined comment Wednesday to the Detroit Free Press. Police Cmdr. Jeff Geisinger did not return calls seeking comment.
The departmentâ€™s investigation began with a 911 call from Sanchezâ€™s home on April 21, 2006. On a 5-minute tape of the call, obtained by the Free Press, Sanchez told an emergency dispatcher he thought he and his wife were overdosing on marijuana.
â€œI think weâ€™re dying,â€ he said. â€œWe made brownies and I think weâ€™re dead, I really do.â€
Sanchez later told police investigators that his wife took the marijuana out of his police vehicle while he was sleeping. In a subsequent interview, he admitted he got the marijuana out of the car himself and put it in the brownie mix, police said.
His wife also was not charged.
