This Just in: Christina Lake debacle is growing explosively and now has a connection involving theft of pot and property in evidence from the police lockup, siezed by the RCMP, in the Bear Black Mountain scam. (click title link and watch the videos still up embedded of the news article by Bud the Oracle, raving reporter.)
A police spokesman said that one man is in custody after the break in and that there was Dynamite seized from his residence during the arrest. The man was not from Ottawa but a long time resident of the area and a friend of the Christina lake mountain woman, a lover of wildlife and lover of bears, who was entrapped by the RCMP trained bears. Tempers are dangerously close to flaring, the ignition point is near in this escalating tale of grow op intrigue and RCMP dirty tricks.
There were no comments from Brian Taylor or the Mountain Woman, who are not intrinsically connected except through their love of bears and disdain of the RCMP
This brings to mind another story of police corruption and theft from Property rooms "The French Connection" aftermath
led to a major New York Police Department (NYPD) corruption scheme. The scope and depth of this scheme are still not known, but officials suspect it involved corrupt NYPD officers, who allowed Papa, Alessi, and Loria access to the NYPD property/evidence storage room at 400 Broome Street, where hundreds of kilograms of heroin lay seized from the now-infamous French Connection bust, the missing heroin replaced with flour and cornstarch.
The substitution was discovered only when officers noticed insects eating all the bags of "heroin". By that point an estimated street value of approximately $70 million worth of "smack" had already been taken. The racket was brought to light and arrests were made. Certain plotters received jail sentences, including Papa. (Papa was later assassinated in federal prison in Atlanta, Georgia; several conflicting reasons why have been suggested). The French Connection investigation demonstrated that international trafficking networks were best disabled by the combined efforts of drug enforcement agencies from multiple countries. In this case, agents from the United States, Canada, Italy and France had worked together to achieve success.
