Sheriff's investigator doubted Douglas DA David McDade's stolen guns report

Posted: Updated:
DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ga. -

When the Douglas County district attorney reported he was the victim of a crime, it sparked a Douglas County Sheriff's Office investigation. But the lead investigator on that stolen gun case told his bosses he didn't believe the district attorney's story.

The investigator was demoted. To date, the guns have not been recovered and no arrests have been made.

FOX 5 senior I-Team reporter Dale Russell obtained the startling internal affairs report in which several investigators expressed doubts about the reported theft.
