Is the St. Louis Metro Police Department Hiding a Drug Task Force?
"To say the Chief of Police doesn't know what that could I be referring to is concerning at best because of the amount of authority and amount of money that they have no idea where it could be going," Malin says.
Lawson has yet to respond to additional requests for information from Malin. Daily RFT reached out to Lawson for comment, but have yet to hear back.
The documents definitely make it appear that there is a drug task force (or a unit just like it) and Malin is skeptical that the SLMPD is just trying to hide behind semantics.
But why? And where's the nearly $200,000 in grant money going?
We'll update when we get more information.
