A Michigan narc developed a taste for the stuff he was supposed to be repressing, a San Diego detention deputy got caught with cocaine in his car in the jail parking lot, and more. 

[image:1 align:right]In San Diego, a former San Diego County sheriff’s detention deputy was sentenced January 31 to two years’ probation after being caught at a county jail with cocaine in his car. Allen Wereski, 49, pleaded guilty last year to a felony count of possessing drugs on jail property for having cocaine at the Vista Detention Facility.Wereski’s arrest was the second of a San Diego County sheriff’s deputy last year related to drugs. Cory Richey, a deputy who stole prescription medication from a drop-off box at a patrol station, later pleaded guilty and was sentenced last year to two years of probation.

In Roanoke, Virginia, a former city sheriff’s detention deputy was sentenced Monday to four years in prison for taking bribes and smuggled marijuana into the city jail. Jonathan Hidalgo, 34, got caught accepting a $1,000 bribe to take weed into the jail, which he did by hiding it in cleaning supplies. He pleaded guilty in November to three felonies: delivering narcotics to a prisoner and two counts of bribery in a correctional facility.

In Lansing, Michigan, a former narcotics enforcement officer with the Houghton Police Department was sentenced Monday to 90 days in jail after pleading guilty to meth possession. Scott Monette, 55, had served on the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team (UPSET) when allegations of his meth possession and use first flared in 2021. An investigation by the State Police found methamphetamine and smoking pipes at Monette’s residence and confirmed his DNA was present on the pipes. Monette pled guilty to the charge of one count of Possession of Methamphetamine on January 3rd of this year. [Editor's Note: We do not typically include officers whose only offense was personal drug use or possession in our corrupt cops stories, but this guy's job was to arrest people for using the substances he himself enjoyed, which makes him at least morally corrupt in our book.]
