Missing Drugs

Missing drugs from the Beckley Police Department's evidence room will not affect federal cases - at least for now. The Register-Herald is reporting U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says his office is still looking into the matter. In August the drugs turned up missing and Raleigh County prosecutor Kristin Keller has said because evidence had been compromised state drug cases going back with 15 months would be dismissed. A criminal investigation is underway by the federal Drug Enforcement Agency and the police department has started an internal investigation.
