A.F. Special Investigators suspect 10 officers of drug possession

In what will likely turn out to be a “tip of the iceberg” investigation, ten Air Force officers are now being investigated for illegal possession and use of banned recreational drugs.

The investigation spans six bases inside the United States and one base in the United Kingdom.

According to various news reports, among them an Associated Press feed, the initial investigation started at Edwards Air Force Base near Lancaster, Calif., hailed as the “Air Force Materiel Command Center of Excellence”.

Thursday, authorities revealed that two nuclear launch control officers at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Great Falls, Mont., were being investigated for drug use.

From there, with more than a little pressure from government investigators, the probe exploded. The other officers swept up in the investigation are based at Vandenberg, Calif., Schriever A.F.B. in Colorado and at a Royal Air Force base in Lakenheath, England.

Yesterday, Air Force spokesman Lt. Col. Brett Ashworth said there were no further details since this is an active military investigation.

At this time there is no connection with this Air Force drug-related investigation and the helicopter crash that took the lives of four U.S. Airmen off the coast of England earlier this week.
