Georgia Cop Busted on Marijuana ChargesBy Associated Press June 21, 2013
MACON, GA — A Macon, Georgia police officer has been arrested and placed on administrative leave after a raid of her home turned up 11 ounces of marijuana packaged for sale.
Officer Kontrina Lanette Toomer, 27, has been charged with the possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, as well as child endangerment charges for having children present in the home while marijuana was present.
Police say Toomer was arrested Thursday following the raid of her home. Her children were present at the time.
Internal affairs officers took her gun and badge, and Officer Toomer has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the internal affairs investigation.
Local news outlets report that Toomer is the fifth Macon police officer to be arrested so far this year.
Police Chief Mike Carswell issued a statement Friday saying his department has “no tolerance for even a single arrest.”
Toomer is being held at the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, according to a sheriff’s office release. The Monroe County case still is under investigation, and additional charges could be filed.busted , Kontrina Lanette Toomer , Macon , police
