Pittsburgh police this week released the outcome of an investigation into the discovery last fall of a small amount of marijuana inside a commander's take-home car.
A small amount of the drug was found in the take-home car belonging to then-narcotics Cmdr. Cheryl Doubt while it was being cleaned at a private shop in the fall.
Police said narcotics Detective Brock Covington had searched Cmdr. Doubt's 2008 Chevrolet Impala before it was taken to the shop and did not find anything suspicious inside it. The drugs were discovered when the bureau picked up the commander's car, George Trosky, assistant chief of investigations, said.
"Upon interviewing employees at the detail shop, it was learned that many people had access to the vehicle," he said Wednesday. "Based on the information received, it could not be narrowed down as to how that very small amount of marijuana ended up in a vehicle that did not contain the contraband before being dropped off."
