A former police detective in Oregon has been busted for drug trafficking in Chicago. William Floyd Marsh Jr. is currently being held on $1.5 million bail after receiving a multitude of charges including armed violence, cannabis trafficking, delivery of more than 5,000 grams of cannabis, possession of more than 5,000 grams of cannabis, and money laundering charges. His alleged accomplice, Gerald Matthew Wiese, is being held on $250,000 bail in Oregon on controlled substance and drug possession charges.

Marsh was pulled over for speeding last Friday when police found $80,000 in cash and two handguns inside the vehicle. A storage locker linked to Marsh later revealed 55 pounds of marijuana and $2,185 in cash. His former employers at the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office then conducted a separate investigation that linked him to two storage lockers containing 6.3 pounds of methamphetamine, 2.4 pounds of heroin, and 5.7 ounces of cocaine.

"Everyone here at the sheriff's office was deeply disappointed by the news that a former employee of this organization made the choice to violate the laws that all of us are sworn to uphold,” said Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts in a statement. "This is an especially bitter blow because the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office has made the fight against illegal drugs a top priority in our community.”

Earlier this month, a crime lab chemist in Florida was arrested for allegedly selling stolen drug evidence. Joseph Graves is currently being held on $290,000 bail after facing being charged with grand theft, 12 counts of tampering with evidence, and nine counts of drug trafficking.
