Veteran Carlsbad police detective pleads guilty to stealing drugs

Posted: Updated:

VISTA (CNS) - A veteran Carlsbad police detective pleaded guilty Thursday to a felony charge of second-degree burglary for stealing heroin from the department's property impound room.

Michael C. Koch, 44, will be sentenced -- probably to probation -- on June 20 at the Vista Courthouse.

A statement released by the Carlsbad Police Department after Koch's Jan. 19 arrest said "numerous" police employees witnessed the thefts.

Police Chief Gary Morrison expressed "tremendous disappointment" and placed Koch on paid administrative leave.

The defendant had been with the Carlsbad Police Department for 18 years.
