A Toronto police officer is facing legal and employment consequences after he tampered with evidence in a drug case resulting in the release of seven suspects.

At the end of January, 36-year-old Vittorio Dominelli, an officer with the Toronto police for 13 years, was part of a team carrying out a raid on a marijuana shop that was under investigation for running an illegal operation. While they were collecting evidence, Dominelli retained three chocolate candy bars containing cannabis oil that he saw had been left out of the collection bag.

After the raid, Dominelli and his partner that evening went out for a bite to eat and he confided in her about stealing the candy bars. He additionally told her that he felt like he should throw them away while they were at the restaurant, but they ultimately decided that it would not be safe to get rid of them in a place that is accessible to the public.

Two Florida men are facing charges on suspicion that they broke into the home of a man with whom they had both reportedly had a previous intimate relationship and tried to hide evidence of the event by attempting to cause a fire using Ragu sauce.

A DeLand, Florida, man with a home protected by security cameras received a telephone notification near 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday telling him that his surveillance equipment detected movement inside of his dwelling. A towel had been placed over the lens of one of the cameras which further alarmed him that foul play might be taking place. The man notified the authorities, and Volusia County police dispatched to the location to investigate his report.

As deputies pulled up to the home they allegedly spotted a red SUV driving away from the site. The men inside the vehicle were pulled over before they were able to leave the area, and police found John Silva, 28, driving with a passenger identified as Derrick Irving, 36. Irving was reportedly clothed in a bull costume.
