Investigators then combed Keeley’s rental house for evidence before handing the property back over to him, he said.
Keeley said his wife and 9-year-old accompanied him to the home on Sunday to clean it up and get it ready for new tenants. Inside the home, Keeley said he found eight bags of narcotics hidden behind the walls.
Keeley said he immediately called the authorities, but he was shocked by their reaction. Officers interrogated him and his wife before arresting them on charges of tampering with evidence, he said.
Keeley said officers threatened to send their 9-year-old to the Department of Family and Children Services, but a neighbor stepped up to watch him.
