A judge decided not to hold the police department in contempt despite the fact that it seems they've not done enough to investigate Colleen Brubaker, a chemist who is awaiting trial on allegations that she stole 2,700 painkiller pills to feed her own addiction.

Public defender Bradley Bridge believes hundreds of drug cases - involving pills or other drugs, such as cocaine - could be tainted by Brubaker's handling of them from the time she started in the lab in 1999 to her resignation in May. The District Attorney's Office has withdrawn 18 cases, the majority of them misdemeanors, because of Brubaker's involvement."
