A Clarinda police officer is no longer on the force — and the county attorney’s investigating the ex-cop for possibly hawking drug paraphernalia.Jim Gibson, a four-year veteran of Clarinda’s police department, left the job May 17th, but Clarinda police chief Joe Newton won’t elaborate on his departure. Newton will only confirm that he and the Page County Attorney are investigating Gibson and his wife’s connection to a web site called “M.J.’s Smokeshop”. Newton says the site sold items like pipes that could be used to inhale drugs. Late last week the web site was altered and replaced with one displaying designer clothing.
