There is a logic problem by the Police Chief. He claims that he released the alleged robbery video because of a media request. If no one knew about the alleged robbery how did anyone in the media know? It smells like a leak, ie a cop told a friendly media source "Hey there was an alleged robbery prior to the cop stopping him, how about you requesting it, btw don't mention the source". If there is no leak then reveal who requested it, actually it should be revealed anyways.
Another logic problem the police chief said the cop saw the stolen cigars yet the cop did not know about the robbery (the stop was unrelated) how then did the cop know they were stolen?
