Berwick, PA

A former Berwick police officer regularly raided the department's evidence room to feed a heroin addiction, swiping hypodermic needles and hundreds of packets of the drug, investigators said.

The state Attorney General's Office charged the former officer, Christian Wilson, on Friday with four counts of theft and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to investigators, Wilson admitted using the 831 packets of heroin he stole from an evidence envelope in a colleague's desk drawer.

Wilson resigned from the Berwick department July 16. He said he had been battling a heroin addiction for two years, according to investigators.
