    Prosecutors have dropped criminal charges against a suspected madam because their case hinged on a California narcotics officer charged with stealing drugs from evidence lockers.

    The Contra Costa district attorney's office say up to 40 other cases involving State Department of Justice Agent Norman Wielsch could also be at stake. Wielsch has been charged with 25 felony counts involving the theft of methamphetamines, marijuana, steroids and prescription pills from evidence lockers.

    The task force led by Wielsch targeted prostitution and drug rings.

    The San Francisco Chronicle says prosecutors decided to drop a case involving Wielsch in a 2009 sting at the Excel Massage Therapy parlor in San Ramon. There were two arrests.

    A judge dismissed the case last week at Koeppel's request.
