Calgary police officer acquitted

A Calgary police officer has been acquitted of all charges after taking home a bag of seized marijuana.

Robert Cumming was acquitted of charges of breach of trust, theft under 5 thousand dollars, and possession of a controlled substance.

Cumming was accused of taking home an ounce of marijuana instead of logging it as property at the district office.

He said during the trial that he never had any intention of using the drugs himself.

Cumming’s lawyer painted his client as a “lazy police officer” who didn’t want to get caught up doing 90 minutes of paperwork by bringing the marijuana to the district office.

Cumming says he is happy about the verdict but is unsure if he wants to rejoin the Calgary police service.
