APD internal investigation discussed at commission meeting

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A Dougherty County commissioner is demanding answers after hearing about an 8 month internal investigation involving an Albany Police Captain, who's accused of teaching a class at Albany State University while on duty.

We first reported the incident involving Captain Darrin Abner on Thursday. This is video from the investigation interview of Abner on October 15th, he resigned the next day.

The internal investigation began in March, because of questions of high mileage and gas usage in his county vehicle. Commissioner Jack Stone says that's money which needs to be paid back to the taxpayers of Dougherty County.

"When we start losing money, taxpayers dollars, for somebody using our car to go and do unauthorized things, and spending our gas, then I've got concern. And I want to find out what's going on and find out what can be done about it," said Stone.

Commissioner Stone asked the county administrator and attorney to check into the issue and update the commission in the near future.

The investigation says the double dipping was never proven, because of payroll record issues at Albany State and the Drug Unit.

Abner told us he has taught college classes for seven years, and when it apparently became an issue, he resigned.
