Former Florida officer planted drugs during traffic stops, 'tailored' body cam video

A former Florida deputy was arrested Wednesday morning on numerous charges that he planted street drugs like meth on unsuspecting motorists before hauling them off to jail.

Zach Wester, 26, was arrested on felony charges of racketeering, official misconduct, fabricating evidence, possession of a controlled substance and false imprisonment.

The one-time Jackson County deputy faces misdemeanor charges of perjury, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement said.

He was arrested by FDLE agents and taken to the Wakulla County Jail, where he is being held without bail.

Whispers of misconduct about Wester began to surface around the courthouse last August, sparking the FDLE's investigation at the request of the Jackson County Sheriff's Office.

Wester was placed on leave Aug. 1 and fired amid an internal affairs investigation a month later.

The investigation found Wester routinely pulled over citizens for alleged minor traffic infractions, planted drugs inside their vehicles and arrested them on fabricated charges, the FDLE said.

He also allegedly circumvented the Jackson County Sheriff's Office body camera policy and "tailored" his recordings to conceal his crimes, the FDLE said.

“There is no question that Wester’s crimes were deliberate and that his actions put innocent people in jail,” said Chris Williams, assistant special agent in charge of the FDLE’s Pensacola office.

How do you "tailor" a body cam?

Probably turn it off at certain times so as not record your actions.
