Cocaine cop Shane Diehm faces fresh charges in QLD

FRESH charges have been laid against discharged Tweed/Byron police chief Shane Diehm. This time relating to drugs.

The former detective inspector and crime manager, who once sparked an internal investigation over alleged cocaine use, fronted the Southport Magistrate Court this morning charged with possess drugs and knowingly provide a place.

APN Newsdesk understands the charges relate to a party Diehm hosted on the Gold Coast while he was allegedly under surveillance.

Diehm was discharged from the NSW Police Service in late 2012 following a turbulent year in which he allegedly tested positive to cocaine at a party in Sydney and was investigated as part of a cross-border sting targeting drug use in police ranks.

He is currently before the courts charged with four counts of lying to the NSW  Police Integrity Commission.
A two-day hearing is listed to begin in Sydney on March 24.
