SLPD Chief Brown Seen Shreding Records until 230AM
State agents on Wednesday seized records from the Spring Lake Police Department after witnesses reported seeing Police Chief A.C. Brown and an officer shredding files.
Superior Court Judge E. Lynn Johnson ordered the State Bureau of Investigation to take control of all police files, including computer and cell phone records. The order cited a report that Brown was seen in the department until 2:30 a.m. Wednesday and that a Cumberland County deputy saw police Sgt. Mark Thomas shredding files on Tuesday.
Should those records have been seized back on Monday when the department was raided by the SBI? Sheriff Moose, you need to have better control over them than this.
