Ammo Missing From Memphis PD

A lot of ammunition is unaccounted for at the Memphis Police Department Training Academy.

City auditor Leon Pattman is investigating up to 200,000 rounds of missing ammunition at the academy’s Firearms Training Unit, according to The Commercial Appeal

Mayor A C Wharton confirmed there is an investigation, but declined specifics, citing the ongoing probe.

Pattman’s investigation is part of a broader examination of the Organized Crime Unit – an audit requested by Police Director Toney Armstrong.

Former Police Director Larry Godwin said he met in Nashville with auditors from Memphis and answered their questions. He also said he sent Pattman a letter answering more questions. Godwin declined to provide the newspaper a copy of the letter, saying the investigation wasn’t finished.
