Police who lie: A peel region police officer lied under oath to
cover up an illegal house search
As he berated the drug dealer’s brother, Peel Police Const. Jay Kirkpatrick had
no idea he was being recorded.
The audio from that conversation, once presented in court, would compromise a
major drug bust and catch a police officer lying, under oath, on the witness

But they searched the house anyway, discovering a stockpile of drugs
including two more kilos of cocaine, the judge found. The judge said the
