Calgary Police Service member charged
The Calgary Police Service has charged a police officer following a drug investigation.
In November 2015, members of the Anti Corruption Unit were made aware of allegations a CPS constable may have seized marijuana during the course of his duties, but failed to dispose of it according to procedure.
Following a thorough investigation, the member was arrested late on Friday, June 3, 2016.
Robert CUMMING, 43, from Calgary, has now been charged with breach of trust, theft under and possession of a controlled substance.
His next court appearance is scheduled for Friday, July 15, 2016.
He has been relieved from duty and a decision is now being made in relation to pay.
A Professional Standards Section investigation will proceed upon the conclusion of the criminal process.
