Sheriff's reaction to evidence tampering

Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan says deputies were going through a routine process -- getting rid of old evidence -- when they realized something was wrong.

"Our evidence technicians were going through that process when they discovered some envelopes that had been tampered with. And the further investigation showed that some of the evidence was missing. And so we immediately launched and internal investigation. We notified our criminal investigative division. We also contacted the State Attorneys Office and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement because it involved narcotics."
