CHICAGO — A Chicago police officer has been charged with possession of cocaine in a squad car after an incident in Norwood Park early Friday morning.
Antrinuis Andrews, 38, was charged with two felony counts of possession of a control substance, and one misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia, according to his court hearing held Saturday.
According to bond court, Andrews was seen leaving a CPD vehicle, not in gear, walking into a bar in Norwood Park near the 7100 block of Higgins Avenue around 4:00 a.m.
Upon a call of suspicion, a CPD officer arrived at the scene and approached Andrews, detecting odor of alcohol. Police also observed a clear plastic bag containing white residue and another bag containing a ‘rock-like’ substance.
