Popping pills in the police evidence room

Stolen drugs lead police chief to resign
I've been in Memphis for more than 7 years..but this was my first story in Trumann, AR. Mayor Sheila Walters kept us waiting more than an hour before finally talking about police chief Tony Rusher's resignation. An internal investigation found he was stealing prescription drugs from the department's evidence room. The drugs had been seized and used in court. Rusher told the investigator he used more than a dozen Xanax, Hydrocodone, and Percocet pills per day. It's a wonder he could still function.
