What does $8 mil worth of drugs look and feel like when it’s torched? Who the hell knows? Only your bird can sing. But we do know well the telling, glassy-eyed grin of a friendly contact buzz. Click on this Oakland Press story to see Waterford Police Chief Daniel McCaw, dapper in his uniform and insignia, wielding sizeable amounts of weed.
The Waterford Township cops "recently" burned enough pot, heroin, coke and prescription drugs to fetch $8 mil “on the street.” All in, the dope fit inside the back of two trucks and one van and was torched at a Southeast Michigan incinerator; the location remained a secret because of “security reasons.”
McCaw's quoted in the piece saying the burn was “the largest we have had since I have been on the force. It seems we are getting more and more drugs to burn.”
