Halifax police probe allegations that evidence was mishandled; staffers on leave

Halifax police are investigating four of their own staff over allegations that property was mishandled.

They say the items in the force's property and exhibit section had been designated for destruction, and didn't include drugs or weapons.

However, the four employees have been placed on leave with pay while the matter is being investigated.

The force says the section handles property that is seized, surrendered or found, while the exhibits are kept for investigative and court purposes, as well as to return property to its owners.
