Police suspect rodents are the culprit

`Marijuana, cocaine and narcotics began disappearing from the evidence room, and police say they’ve found the culprit — rats.

About a month ago, North Port Police Department evidence and property technician Pamela Schmidt picked up a bag and noticed that it looked like it had been chewed through, said Capt. Robert Estrada. [..]

Estrada said some narcotics and marijuana were eaten by the rats, but did not know how much was eaten.’
