A high-ranking Ludlow police officer charged with stealing drugs from the department’s evidence locker has been suspended without pay. Lieutenant Thomas Foye had been suspended with pay since his arrest in August, but because he was indicted by a grand jury last week, the town’s Board of Selectmen voted unanimously Tuesday to suspend him without pay. According to court documents, video surveillance captured the 49-year-old Foye entering the locked narcotics locker at the police station, where he appears to handle and open evidence bags. He is charged with tampering with evidence, theft of drugs from a dispensary, and cocaine possession.
