You really can’t make this stuff up! Eight Argentinian police officers from the town of Pilar found themselves out of a job after claiming that some rogue mice had eaten over half a ton of marijuana that had been seized by local authorities. When asked what happened to the missing cannabis, four of the officers stated that mice had carried it away. Considering the significant amount that was missing, the fact that mice don’t think of marijuana as food and would have likely all have gotten very sick or died if they had actually eaten the illegal pot, you can officially file this excuse under “a likely story.”
Four of the individuals that were reprimanded have been ordered to testify before a judge next month in order to ascertain whether the marijuana went missing due to unlawful reasons or because of negligence on the part of the officers involved.

Eight police officers in Argentina, including a former town police commissioner, have been dismissed from their posts after four of them claimed that more than half a ton of missing marijuana was carried off by mice, The Guardian reported Wednesday.
The paper reported that police in the town of Pilar, about 35 miles northwest of Buenos Aires, impounded 6,000 kilograms (13,228 pounds) of marijuana. But when police inspected the evidence warehouse sometime later, they found that 540 kilograms (1,190 pounds) were missing.
During their investigation, officers found that former police commissioner Javier Specia had not signed the inventory for the pot before he left his post in April 2017.
Specia and three of his subordinates were called before a judge, and all of them told the same story: the missing marijuana had been “eaten by mice.”
