Now retired, Bremerton cop Roy Alloway was one of WestNET’s top officers. Next month he’s up for sentencing on federal tax fraud and gun dealing charges.

​Among defense attorneys, “narcotics officers” have a certain reputation: thuggishly violent goons who enjoy trashing suspects’ homes and bullying children. There’s no better example of why such perceptions exist than the WestNET task force in Washington state.

Police took the baby to a local hospital and released him to the custody of his grandparents, according to LEX18.com. The child will reportedly “undergo testing.” He is, of course, expected to be fine.
