Apparently, many police officers don’t realize that when they activate their camera, the previous 30 seconds automatically gets saved. That is where all this takes place. (see video below …)
An officer claimed that they found the drugs on the suspect and testified to that. The bodycam seems to tell a different story. That previous 30 seconds shows the officer not finding drugs on the suspect but perhaps actually planting drugs in the suspect’s wallet.
Predictably, none of the officers on the scene including the one who may have done the planting have any comment. In light of the newly discovered footage, the LAPD announced that they are opening an investigation into this possible drug planting.
Check out the report below from CBS in Los Angeles and see if you agree that the officers were planting drugs to frame a suspect:
