A POLICE officer has been sentenced to 17 years in prison after stealing 154 kilos of cocaine and heroin.

The policeman from the Udyco serious organised crime unit spent over a million euros buying yachts, fast cars, flats and even a houses on the beach with the proceeds.

The drugs were taken from Sevilla’s police headquarters between 2006 and 2009 after being confiscated from criminals.

The officer Lars Sepulveda (above) replaced the drugs with packets of sugar and cement and sold them on with the help of drug dealer, Manuel Alonso Nunez.

Sepulveda was given a 17 year prison sentenced and fined €6.6 million for robbery, drug trafficking and money laundering.

Nunez was given a 15-year prison sentence.

The partners of both were also given shorter prison sentences for money laundering on their behalf.

It is one of dozens of similar cases of policemen being involved in drug dealing gangs around Andalucia over recent years.

People are constantly looking down on bikers in the comunity, people who do their own thing a lot of the bikers I know are respecful business men, yes a few bad apples but ever group will have the bad seed. Should we painted with the same brush? If you are a person that belives we should be then…. what about police officers selling cocaine, you are to trust these people how trust worthy are they? should all cops be painted with that brush?? for those who will comenent to my reply, I want you to google police officer convicted of…. (place what u want, Rape, Murder, Child molestation, Tasering the elderly weak and defenseless) I could goon forever but a member of the Hells Angels gets caught with some drugs, look out they are all horrible people, maybe its time society takes a look at the real Crimianls local and federal police.

Im sure people willreply and have lots of hearsay things they have heard, but more police have been charged and done worse than any member of the Hells Angels I’ve ever read about.
