A Ludlow Police Lt. has been indicted on charges of possession of cocaine, tampering with evidence and theft from the evidence locker room in the police department.
The State Attorney General's office announced Thursday that a grand jury indicted Lt. Thomas Foye.
Foye was arrested last August after an investigation was carried out by State Police assigned to the Attorney General's office.
Authorities say they watched Foye access the evidence room via a surveillance camera.
According to the Attorney General's office, Foye stole dozens of pieces of evidence including cocaine and prescription pills. Authorities further allege that in some cases, Foye replaced the narcotics in the evidence bags with pills that did not match the description on the corresponding state lab certifications.
