AS MANY AS SEVEN police officers ranging in rank from special constable to sergeant, were being questioned up to late last night in connection with a suspected illegal drugs racket.

According to sources, the breakthrough started after investigators, acting on a tip-off, discovered a quantity of marijuana in the possession of one of the officers, who was subsequently taken into custody over the weekend.

Reports also indicated that further investigations resulted in the questioning of several other officers in relation to the drug find.

Sources also revealed yesterday that investigators were looking into a report which alleged that officers driving a patrol car last week intercepted a private vehicle being driven along a St George district and removed a quantity of marijuana from the trunk but did not report the bust.
