Given the evidence uncovered in the bourbon and steroid ring, Frankfort Mayor William May will make a request for an investigation of the Frankfort Police Department. May told The State Journal on Friday that he would request the Frankfort City Commission to authorize funding if needed for an independent investigation into the city’s police department in light of a former officer’s alleged involvement in a steroid purchasing scheme. “First of all, I immediately was shocked and disappointed that allegations were made against a Frankfort City Police Officer involved in the sale of illegal steroids,” May said. “After learning the officer did admit he was involved in it, I was further disappointed and immediately thought we needed to do some type of investigation to make sure that we clear the department and move forward so that we can restore public confidence and faith in the FPD and the administration.”
FRANKFORT — A DARE officer for the Frankfort Police Department who allegedly was involved in a transaction for anabolic steroids with a central figure in the recent high-profile bourbon thefts has resigned, a department spokesman said Wednesday. Mike Wells resigned Monday, said Maj. Rob Warfel, spokesman for the department. As a Drug Abuse Resistance Education officer, Wells went into schools to warn students of the dangers of drugs. Wells, 42, has not been charged in the bourbon thefts, Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton said Wednesday. Melton would not say whether he anticipated that Wells would be charged, but he said he did anticipate more arrests in the ever-expanding investigation. Frankfort Police Chief Jeff Abrams said in a statement Wednesday that Wells resigned after the department conducted an internal investigation. Read more here: www.kentucky.com...=cpy

EternalSolace touched a bit on my reply. I think the problem is going to lay more with the bourbon involvement . Kentucky has always been the bourbon state and it still is because a lot of old money, political connections and taxes .
