Baltimore Police are investigating after drug evidence vanished Thursday from the agency's evidence control unit in police headquarters.

Capt. Eric Kowalczyk confirmed that a citizen was in the evidence unit Thursday to pick up property, and drug evidence went "missing." He would not identify the evidence or elaborate on how much was taken or how the chain of custody was broken.

"We are currently conducting a criminal and administrative investigation to see what transpired," Kowalczyk said.

The evidence control unit is located on an upstairs floor of the police headquarters building on Fayette Street.
