Cop pleads guilty to reselling stolen narc evidence on the streets

East Bay cop to admit guilt in drug case


The former commander of an elite Contra Costa County police squad will plead guilty this week to charges that he stole narcotics from evidence lockers and tried to sell them back on the street with the help of a private investigator, court records show.

Under a plea deal filed Monday in federal court, Norman Wielsch, 51, will admit to five charges in a 2011 federal indictment in exchange for a lighter sentence.

The charges allege that he stole marijuana and methamphetamines, falsely arrested a suspected drug dealer, and stole cash and cell phones from prostitutes, his attorney said.

The terms of the deal require Wielsch to ask for no fewer than 10 years in prison when he is sentenced by a judge in February, his attorney Michael Cardoza said.

2. ROFL ! Is this supposed to be big news ?

In my old hood, it was always understood that, "if you weren't selling the police's dope, you'll be in jail."
