Newtown Police Commissioners to Examine Procedures After Sergeant Arrested for Steroids
The commission vowed to look into how Santucci and Chicko’s allegedly got away with selling steroids for years.
NEWTOWN – The town’s Board of Police Commissioners released a statement Wednesday morning describing the drug trafficking accusations against a Newtown police sergeant and a civilian dispatcher as “totally unacceptable” and “highly disturbing.”
The five commissioners also promised to take action to prevent police misconduct in Newtown.
“The citizenry of Newtown can rest assured that we, as elected representatives of the people, will conduct a comprehensive examination of police department procedures that may have enabled this conduct to go undetected,” the statement said.
A federal grand jury last week indicted former Newtown Police Sgt. Steven Santucci and seven other Connecticut men accused of distributing steroids and prescription drugs.
