The Bulldog learned, an internal audit found a handful of guns and other police department property was taken from the evidence room at the Lithonia Police Department. Guns, city officials admit, that were part of serious crimes under investigation.
The interim chief is currently investigating, and has not identified who might be behind the theft.
