Read this article and see if it passes the sniff test to you because something stinks to High Heaven when I read it.
Snippets of this should be enough for you to go to the link above and finish reading the original article because you couldn't make this up and there is some bullshit going on even though they are trying to say everything is under control now.
The audit, conducted by Hartford's chief auditor, H. Patrick Campbell, at the request of Police Chief James Rovella, found that the range administrator — identified by Hartford police as Officer Louis Crabtree — purchased an average of 485,000 rounds per year over the past six years, more than 1,000 rounds each for the force of about 400 officers.
But the auditor found that the department would not need more than 240,000 rounds a year, and was actually using about 180,000 rounds. What about the other 200,000-plus rounds? There were no records of ammunition purchased, held in storage or distributed to police officers. Where is it? Documentation "was not adequate to ensure that all ammunition ... was used for HPD purposes and not misappropriated."
Officer Crabtree was dealing with a vendor in Greenfield, Mass., who kept only paper records on a notepad. They don't sell bullets in Connecticut?
Mr. Campbell found that over a 10-month period in 2014, Mr. Crabtree purchased 94,500 rounds of .45-caliber and 9mm ammunition, at a cost of more than $33,000 — even though in 2012 Hartford switched to .40-caliber handguns. According to the audit, Mr. Crabtree acknowledged the purchase of the .45-caliber and 9mm rounds, but said that he did so with the purpose of trading for .40-caliber rounds, which he claimed were in short supply.
It appears that Officer Crabtree has since retired and if by some strange happenstance they find evidence of wrong doing then the State's Attorney will be notified.
