Unbelievable story. Why the fuck would cops take the word of a thief that the methamphetamine in his possession happened to be in the car that he had stolen? Because we all know that drug users never steal to support their own habits.

I've got to believe that civil asset forfeiture greed played a part here. The cops probably thought to themselves, "Hey, we don't really believe this guy, but if his testimony gets us a search warrant, and we find any contraband in the theft victim's house, we can seize the house and keep the proceeds."

I assume, from this comment, that you are suggesting that the victim is black? I can find no evidence that this is the case. None of the news stories mention his race, and the only two photos i've managed to find of the victim suggest that he's a white guy, albeit with a good tan in one of the images.
