PHOENIX -- Two ex-Goodyear police officers are accused of stealing cannabis chocolate from a shipping company in Phoenix.

Court documents show 45-year-old Eric Scott Whittington and 44-year-old David Carpenter Bryant are security guards for a delivery company.

A 50-pound package marked as cannabis chocolate arrived from California to the company last Thursday.

Employees weren't expecting the shipment and put the package in a room with the intention of calling police to confiscate it.

Before they could do that, the security officers allegedly put the package into backpacks and walked out.

Police say they served search warrants at Bryant's home in Goodyear and Whittington's home in Litchfield Park and recovered about 20 pounds of the cannabis chocolate.

They say Bryant and Whittington are accused of theft and possession of narcotic drugs for sale.
