A Fort Worth police officer who resigned last year after being arrested for keeping marijuana instead of turning it over as evidence has been sentenced to two years of probation.
In a plea deal, Wesley Lamb pleaded guilty Thursday to a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge and also permanently
surrendered his Texas peace officer's license.
Lamb's attorney did not return a call seeking comment.
Police began investigating Lamb after receiving a tip that he was possibly smoking pot while on duty, in uniform and in his patrol car.
An undercover officer posing as a concerned citizen gave Lamb
about 3 ounces of marijuana. Lamb said he'd destroy it. Although he
was supposed to take it to the police property room, the pot was
later found in his home and personal car.
