Eight police officers in Pinar Argentina have been fired over the disappearance of around 1,200 pounds of pot. The officers argued that the missing drugs had been "eaten by mice" in the warehouse for impounded drugs. Over 6 tons of marijuana had been stored there two years earlier and investigators found that the total was more than half a ton short.
Forensic experts testified that it was very unlikely that even a large number of rodents could have consumed so much marijuana. A spokesperson says that "mice wouldn't mistake the drug for food, and that if a large group of mice had eaten it, a lot of corpses would have been found in the warehouse."
