Capitol Police Investigating After Troubling Drug Discovery

Once again, cocaine has been discovered where it shouldn't be in President Joe Biden's Washington.

Following the recent incident of cocaine being found in the Biden White House, the United States Capitol Police reported discovering cocaine at its headquarters on Wednesday.

As reported by The Hill, the Capitol Police headquarters is located several blocks from the Capitol complex, at D Street and Second Street.

Capitol Police are "investigating a roughly one-inch by one-inch zip lock bag with a small amount of a white powdery substance, which field tested positive for cocaine," according to a Capitol Police news release.

The release indicated that the bag was found in a hallway on the second floor of the headquarters building.

The release emphasized that the cocaine was discovered in a frequently traveled area.

The hallway where the cocaine was found serves as a "staging spot for furniture and supplies. The area is heavily trafficked by various contractors and employees. It is also near offices such as Prisoner Processing, Crime Scene, Intel, and Reports Processing."

"The baggie was found in the middle of the floor just before 1:00 p.m. by an officer, who immediately reported it to a supervisor. The residue was field tested and came back positive for cocaine," the release stated.

The Capitol Police announced that they will be conducting their own investigation into the matter.

"The USCP Investigations Division has opened an investigation, which will include further testing, including DNA testing of the baggie," the release stated.

Social media users quickly reacted to the news.

Last July, a small amount of cocaine was found in the White House.

A Secret Service investigation was initiated but was closed 11 days later without any explanation about who brought the cocaine into the White House or how it ended up there.

The investigation into the White House cocaine incident concluded that there was no DNA or fingerprints found, according to the Associated Press.
