The Guardian said:
Paris police are investigating the disappearance of 51kg of cocaine from a supposedly locked and sealed room in their own headquarters on the banks of the Seine.
The cocaine "bricks" with a street value of around €2.5m (£2m) were seized a month ago after officers smashed a drug trafficking network in the capital.
They were supposed to be under lock and key at the force's legendary headquarters at 36 Quai des Orfèvres, for ever associated with the fictional French detective Maigret.
Guess the cops had some "private needs"
