DRUG PROBE SPREADS FROM AIR FORCE ACADEMY
TO NORAD AND PETERSON AFB

 

Investigations of drug use at the Air Force Academy in Colorado have spread to NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) and nearby Peterson AFB, informed sources say.

At least 15 airmen at NORAD and Peterson are under investigation, with two already charged. No identities have been released, but the probe is centered on use and distribution of the designer drug Ecstasy, LSD and marijuana.

Meanwhile, a larger investigation at the Air Force Academy, of at least 35 cadets is continuing.

Senior cadet Stephen D. Pouncey got four years in prison and a dishonorable discharge after he was court-martialed for using and selling drugs to other cadets. The 22 year-old from Austin, Texas pleaded guilty to charges he sold Ecstasy and LSD to the cadets while using those drugs and cocaine.

Pouncey, who was in Squadren 3 at the Academy, admitted he sold drugs to at least five other cadets.

Of the total number in the probe, twelve cadets have been cleared, nine received non-judicial punishment, one resigned and the rest are still under investigation.

His life ruined, his years at the Academy wasted, tears filled his eyes as Pouncey stood at trial and said he "prayed" that others will learn from his "bad example" never to become involved with drugs.

"If you are using drugs, stop. If you are thinking about using them, don't," he said.

Pending appeal, Pouncey will serve his sentence at the military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
