Macon officer arrested on marijuana charge

Posted: Updated:

MACON, Ga. (AP) - A Macon police officer has been placed on administrative leave following her arrest on drug and child endangerment charges.

The Telegraph of Macon reports 27-year-old Kontrina Lanette Toomer is the fifth Macon police officer to be arrested in 2013. Police Chief Mike Carswell issued a statement Friday saying his department has "no tolerance for even a single arrest."

Police say Toomer was arrested Thursday after a raid at her home turned up more than 11 ounces of marijuana packaged for sale. Police say children were found in the house at the time of the raid.

Toomer is charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and child endangerment. Internal affairs officers took her gun and badge. It was not known Saturday if Toomer had an attorney.
