Miami VA Cop Tells of Drug Dealing

After CBS4 News reported last month that a veteran died from a cocaine overdose while at the Miami VA’s drug rehab center, a criminal investigator for the VA police department in Miami has come forward with more details about drug dealing that he says happened every day on hospital grounds.
Detective Thomas Fiore tells the Miami TV station that marijuana, cocaine, and heroin were for sale at the Miami VA. He says he was instructed by the hospital’s chief of staff to stop investigating reports of prescription drugs that went missing from the VA pharmacy, and was moved to a different job.
