On September 14, 2016 the Boston Globe reported an emerging scandal involving the Braintree Police Department. An audit commissioned by the police chief revealed missing drugs, guns and money from the evidence room.
As a result, numerous cases which resulted in convictions will be reviewed by the district attorney’s office and a number of pending criminal complaints were dismissed because of the tainted evidence. Therefore, a number of dangerous criminals may be set free.
