The Tulsa County District Attorney's office says no criminal charges will be filed after investigators looked into discarded police evidence being found in a dumpster behind the Glenpool Police Department.
DA Steve Kunzweiler said they finalized their review and the evidence showed "no proof of criminal violation of law."
A few weeks ago, 2 Works for You reporter Travis Guillory was tipped off that evidence - including pictures of victim’s bodies, full-page police records, cassette tapes, drug paraphernalia and more, most of the evidence was from 2003 to 2005 - were all tossed out into a dumpster.
"We have made recommendations to the Chief of Police at Glenpool of appropriate disposal in those types of matters," Kunzweiler said. "Our analysis is that it was poor judgment on the part of their employee who did this."
