The former commander of the RCMP detachment in Merritt will be back in court later for sentencing.
Former Staff Sgt. Stuart Seib pleaded guilty to breach of trust Tuesday morning in Kelowna court for the theft of drugs from a police evidence locker.
He was suspended as head of the Merritt detachment in January 2012, when charges of theft under $5,000 and breach of trust were laid.
At the time, investigators said cocaine had been taken from a police evidence locker.
Seib, an 18-year veteran of the force, was transfered to Merritt in November 2011, after being stationed in Clearwater for seven years.
He resigned from the RCMP last year and won't face internal discipline.
