Charges officially dropped against Darlington Police Officer

4th Circuit Solicitor Will Rogers tells NewsChannel 15 charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute have been dropped against Officer Dominick Robinson.

Investigators say Robinson confiscated the drugs from a case he was working and didn't immediately turn them in as evidence at the Darlington Police Department. They say he went out of town for some training and forgot the drugs were at his home.

Investigators say the evidence was mishandled, but it doesn't appear there was nay criminal intent.

Officer Robinson, who was a school resource officer has been suspended without pay since his arrest. Chief Jay Cox with Darlington Police said Robinson will return to work next week.

Robinson will be reprimanded, and will no longer be a school resource officer. Cox says he will be reassigned to patrol.
