Police Officer Cleared After Illegal Tobacco Probe
The province’s police watchdog has cleared a Regional Police officer after an investigation into possible illegal tobacco sales.
The Serious Incident Response Team says Regional Police got a report in February 2016 one of their officers was selling illegal tobacco.
SIRT says it was assisted by the Nova Scotia Compliance and Special Investigations Unit in looking into the matter.
It adds, following an extensive investigation, no evidence was found that would lead to criminal charges against the officer.
The SIRT has not released the officer’s name.
