Former Florida deputy accused of planting drugs on drivers so he could arrest on extra charges

A former Florida deputy is charged with several felonies, and is accused of pulling over drivers for minor traffic infractions, then planting drugs in their cars so he could arrest them on extra charges.

One of Zachary Wester's victims reportedly lost custody of his daughter as a result of the drug arrest.

Nearly 120 cases between 2016 and 2018 involving Wester were ultimately dropped.
