APD recruit lost weapon, keeps job

August 14, 2007

Albany --  An Albany Police Recruit who lied to her supervisors about her lost service pistol got only a slap on the wrist for her mistakes.

In March, Shunell Borders told her supervisor that her semi-automatic handgun and three magazines were stolen from the trunk of her car while it was parked at the police compound.

She later admitted she lost the gun and lied-- because she was afraid she would be fired if she told the truth.

Albany Police decided not to file charges against Borders for filing a false report or lying to investigators. She was given a written reprimand and paid $517 to replace the pistol.

A Police Spokesman says Borders is still a recruit, but he is not sure if the lost gun was ever found.
