Watch full Evangelous news conference


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington Police Chief Ralph Evangelous said he and his department are embarrassed by failures and mistakes by the narcotics unit nearly a year ago. During a news conference today, Evangelous said it took about nine months for one person with direct knowledge about what happened to come forward and spark an internal investigation.

In the end, two officers were demoted and another suspended for their role in what happened.

Today, Evangelous, clearly angered by what happened, faced reporters during a 28-minute news conference, where reporters fired questions, many of which the chief declined to answer with any detail citing personnel laws.
