Massachusetts State Police K-9 officer quits, hit with a dishonorable discharge

Embattled K-9 trooper Leigha Genduso has quit her high-paying job with the state police and was issued a dishonorable discharge on the way out the door. The announcement came last night and did not address her past romantic relationship with a top commander. She took home $150,000-plus in 2017, according to the Boston Herald.

“She did not disclose her past involvement in a drug dealing operation to any member of the Massachusetts State Police and ... she made demonstrably false statements regarding her past involvement in criminal activities on the application,” agency spokesman David Procopio said in a statement explaining the discharge.

She leaves the force as an internal affairs probe “sustained multiple charges” against her for “narcotics dealing and her own drug use,” Procopio added ... she also never mentioned her role in a marijuana-trafficking operation, including processing and selling pot.

The news comes as 46 troopers, some who have retired, face charges or have admitted guilt to padding their overtime pay. That has resulted in the shuttering of Troop E on the Mass Pike and the other reforms to keep an eye on whether troopers are actually working the hours they are putting in for.
