FDLE Chemist May Have Compromised Evidence
GAINESVILLE - FDLE chemist Joseph Graves has resigned...after an investigation into missing drug evidence.
The investigation comes after the chemist allegedly swapped prescription pills for over the counter pills in a case out of Escambia county.
It's not known how many other cases could be compromised...but FDLE says they will be working with 35 counties around Florida to see if their cases have been tampered with.
One of those agencies that could be affected is the Alachua County Sheriff's Office - "there's going to be a lot of backtracking at this point they will backtrack and see ok well this is what was sent this is what we don't have it's not something that's going to happen over night there are a lot of checks and balances that need to be made."
FDLE says graves has worked on 2,600 cases since 2006.
