A search was conducted tonight at the drug squad of the Paris police, at 36 quai Goldsmiths, after the disappearance of some 50 kilograms of cocaine. The men of the General Inspectorate of the National Police (IGPN, "police the police"), assisted by specialized dogs, investigating the disappearance.
The drug was, according to our information, seizure early July after the dismantling of a network of traffickers Senegalese gang. It was found in the 18th and 19th districts of the capital in cars, hidden through highly sophisticated systems.
A flight of a value of 3.5 million
Police sources, this is an unprecedented case that shook a prestigious Brigade Wharf Goldsmiths. According to the first elements of the investigation, it appears that only officers of the brigade could be involved, hence the exceptional on-site presence of the prefect of police. Senator of Paris, Pierre Charon, he has already demanded an explanation of his disappearance.
The drug was in fact stored in the sealed room, secure and shielded, where you can enter alone. And only the police have access. Cocaine was still there on 23 July. The disappearance was found this morning when an officer wanted to show the room to a trainee. He then realized that all the cocaine stored (and had this one case) had disappeared.
The disappearance of 50 kg of cocaine is particularly disturbing that such a quantity implies that the thief is behind a network for the flow. At 70 euros per gram, the amount of the theft would amount to 3.5 million.
"All hypotheses are open" in any case said a source close to the investigation told AFP. Police sources told the BBC that this was a year that officials demanded services that a camera is placed at the entrance of the room to monitor the comings and goings.

That would be a start.
That, and see if their bank accounts get bigger, and see who is living beyond their means.
“The disappearance of 50 kg of cocaine is particularly disturbing.”
But 49 kg is perfectly acceptable...
Nice to see that French cops are just as industrious as American DEA agents.
