Although suspicious of video cameras, we must applaud them when they serve a positive purpose.
An informant was caught planting evidence at a smoke shop owned by an African American male. Donald Andrew Jr. owns a successful shop which smells tobacco and related paraphernalia. His enterprise is completely legal, however it attracted law enforcement.
Relying on an informant proved liable. The hidden cameras in the shop undeniably show the informant planting crack cocaine in the shop. Crack could land a person at least 4 years in jail, due to mandatory minimum sentencing.
Although the informant planted evidence, police could still be held liable considering the informant was acting under police’s orders and discretion. It’s unclear whether the informant was instructed to plant evidence. Police have not provided a comment.
