A cadet has been charged with stealing drugs and money from the Baltimore County Police department's evidence room.

Twenty-year-old Nicholas Ishmael of Parkville was arrested at headquarters. Officers say he was carrying $40,000 in cash in a backpack when he was taken into custody.

Ishmael is charged with 10 offenses, including theft and possession with intent to distribute narcotics. He is being held on $650,000 bail.

Police say the department began an audit of the evidence room in April, when a detective was unable to get evidence for a drug case. An internal investigation, which included surveillance of the evidence room, was initiated.

Officers say Ishmael stole cocaine, morphine, Oxycodone and Alprazolam.
