DEA “Left” Forgotten Suspect in Cell for 5 Days
A 24 year old University of California San Diego student was one of nine people brought in by the DEA for questioning on April 21 after a drug raid. What happened next is anyone’s guess.
It seems he was forgotten in a cell for five days.
DEA spokeswoman Amy Roderick told the Union Tribune San Diego, “Each suspect was interviewed in separate interview rooms, and frequently moved around between rooms and cells.” She said seven suspects were brought to the county jail, one was released “and the individual in question was accidentally left in one of the cells.”
When agents discovered the blunder, they rushed the man to the hospital in non-life-threatening condition. There he tested positive for methamphetamines which he allegedly found in the cell during his accidental detention.
You have to wonder if University professors will excuse the week-long absence with a note from the DEA.
