Georgia officer fired for losing gun



ALBANY — The Albany Police Department recruit officer who lost her gun and then told investigators that it had been stolen, has been fired, department officials said.

Shunell Borders, 25, was reprimanded after investigators said that she initially told them her weapon had been stolen on March 9, but later recanted that story and admitted it had been lost. She was issued a written reprimand from Chief James Younger and ordered to pay more that $500 to replace the weapon.

According to APD documents, Borders initially told investigator Greg Elder that she believed someone had stolen the gun from her patrol car because one of the car doors didn’t lock and there were inmate laborers around the compound at the time.
