— Some military police officers at Fort Bragg are in serious trouble.

Four soldiers from the 21st MP Company are being investigated for suspicion of drugs. One committed suicide shortly after talking to investigators.

Three years ago, 13 military police officers from the 16th Military Police Brigade were charged with using or selling drugs.

At least three officers were given prison sentences. Five others received administrative punishments.
