Idaho State Police investigating 3 forensic lab workers
BOISE, Idaho (AP) _ The Idaho State Police has launched an
investigation into three of its own employees for potential
violations related to policy in the agency's forensics lab.
Idaho State Police Major Kedrick Wills said all three employees
have been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the
Will said allegations are not criminal, and instead conflict
with policy and standard procedure. He also says the allegations do
not appear to have compromised any previous or current casework.
The Lewiston Tribune reports the employees are suspected of
hiding chemicals and controlled substances from audits and
Wills says the agency has high confidence in the state lab and
there is no reason to believe the issues under inquiry go beyond
the three lab employees.
