Chief Willie Shaw says, the internal affairs division is going over this case very carefully.
It's all in an effort to determine how the narcotics disappeared and to cooperate with the feds.
The hunt is on for the culprits responsible for stealing drugs inside the evidence room at the Shreveport Police Department.
Spokesperson Sgt. Bill Goodin says the inquiry started after Police Chief Willie Shaw was notified of the allegations that the drugs turned up missing .
The internal affairs division found more than 14-thousand out of 26-thousand Hydrocodone pills were no longer in evidence, after being seized back in may of this year.
"He immediately called for a full audit of the facility. Now the results of that audit noticed that there was about 14 thousand missing out of a seizure of a narcotics case," said Goodin.
The police department says it has made several arrests for the sale of illegal narcotics on city streets.
Hydrocodone has a street value that ranges from 5 to 10 dollars per pill.
Charges could be filed once detectives complete the investigation.
