(Newser) – Even Inspector Clouseau could figure out that someone messed up at Paris police headquarters. More than 110 pounds of cocaine—worth about $3.3 million—had been seized over the summer in raids and was assumed to still be stacked up behind a specially fortified door at HQ—until someone discovered yesterday it was gone, reports France 24. The station was already under scrutiny earlier this year when a Canadian tourist said she partied with two officers and then went back to the station with them and was raped, according to AFP. The coke had last been accounted for on July 23; an investigation about the missing drugs is said to be underway, with "all hypotheses … on the table," according to a source.

Don't worry it will show up in Chicago, NYS or Los Angeles. Maybe the Russian Mafia stole it.
