The investigation stems from an incident involving Chief Steve Boser and Deputy Eric Hanneken. Two weeks ago on a felony traffic stop they planted evidence (drug paraphernalia)in the passenger side door of the vehicle,intending to pull it back over the next day and make a bust. Two other deputies witnessed it and Deputy Hanneken bragged about it in front of Morrison Cty Sheriff dispatchers and an officer from Little Falls PD. The Little Falls officer is on the MN Central Drug Task Force and he reported Hanneken to Sheriff Michel Wetzel. Deputy Hanneken was relieved of his duties. Now the Pierz City Council has to deal with Boser. Is Boser Guity...absolutely and this is just one of many crimes he committed. This investigation is not linked to the one from June of 2006. 2006 involved tampering with an application, criminal backgroud check, and deflammation of chracter of a female firefighter applicant. Boser was not put on leave in 2006 because that involved a lawsuit that took 7 months to resolve. There are only 2 people on the Pierz Police commission both of which happen to be very close friends of Boser.

Why are Police Chief Boser and Officer Hannekin not being arrested and charged with this crime? How far do we go to save criminals if they are in law enforcement? And now the incident with Officer Heurung- how trustworthy and honest is our law enforcement?
