200,000 rounds of ammo missing from the Memphis Police Dept Academy’s Firearms Training Unit

Up to 200,000 rounds of ammunition are missing from the Memphis Police Department Training Academy’s Firearms Training Unit, and officials want to know what happened to the ammo.

“Yes, I am aware that something of that nature is being looked into,” said Mayor A C Wharton, who declined to offer more specifics, citing the ongoing investigation.

City auditor Leon Pattman’s investigation of the missing ammunition is part of an in-depth audit of MPD’s Organized Crime Unit.

When Godwin was MPD director, Organized Crime reported directly to him. Godwin said he would have been required to approve any requests from OCU officers who wanted ammunition for training purposes, but that he would not know how the ammunition was used.
