ALABAMA ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE PARTICIPATING IN JOINT STATE-FEDERAL INVESTIGATION OF CURRENT AND FORMER EMPLOYEES OF SELMA POLICE DEPARTMENT

(MONTGOMERY) – Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall announced Tuesday that the Attorney General’s Office is participating in a joint state-federal investigation into current and former employees of the Selma Police Department.

“With the cooperation of Selma Police Chief Spencer Collier, the Alabama Attorney General’s Office, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms are conducting a joint investigation of current and former employees of the Selma Police Department,” said Attorney General Steve Marshall.

“The joint investigation will include an audit of the police department’s evidence room in the wake of recent reports of missing items from the department’s vault.  I appreciate the assistance of Chief Collier who has provided complete access to department’s records as we conduct our joint investigation into possible corruption and missing evidence,” AG Marshall added.

Among the items that may be missing are guns that have been confiscated as evidence in criminal cases. Authorities caution that if a consumer is considering a gun purchase and has a concern that it may be one of those related to this matter, that they should contact the ATF Hotline at 1-800-283-4867.

No further comment or additional information may be provided at this time.
