Arkansas Cop Caught on Camera Stealing Drugs and Stuffing Them in His Pants

A Marion, Arkansas police officer has surrendered to authorities after a months-long investigation by state and local police. Lieutenant Freddy Williams of the Marion Police Department admitted to stealing marijuana and smoking it.

Cameras caught Williams stealing drugs and stuffing them in his pants.

On February 12 Williams was arrested for evidence tampering, possession of a controlled substance and violating the rules of conduct by a county officer or employee — two felonies and a misdemeanor.

According to court documents, narcotics officers within the Marion Police Department set up hidden cameras after they suspected someone of tampering or stealing evidence.

The cameras caught Williams entering the evidence room 13 times between October and December 2018, and on some occasions they said he could be seen stealing evidence and hiding it in his pants. An internal investigation was then launched, Fox 13 reports.

Williams works in the criminal investigation department. In fact as Lieutenant, Willams oversaw and had full access to the general evidence locker. Marijuana and prescription pills were missing from dozens of cases.

When confronted by fellow officers, Williams confessed to stealing marijuana and smoking it.

Police Chief Gary Kelley then contacted Arkansas State Police (ASP) to investigate. ASP learned that Williams accessed the evidence room about 22 times during 2018.

The Marion Police Department is now trying to assess whether this will affect any of their cases. Court documents show narcotics officers conducted an assessment of the evidence locker and determined there are 33 cases with missing evidence — 23 with missing marijuana and 10 with missing prescription pills.

Williams was Officer of the Year twice during his 18 years at the Marion Police Department.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
