GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - In light of the fact that the DA's Office is handling the case from this point forward, we really don't want to comment any further.
"The City of Lilburn Police Department has a solid set of General Orders governing the receipt, storage, transfer and release of property and evidence. It was this practice that enabled the Police Department to discover the theft of property from the Evidence Room. After a thorough Internal Affairs investigation and an on-going criminal investigation by the Gwinnett County District Attorney's Office, it has been determined that Kim Banks was the only person who was taking property. No other persons were involved.
After Kim Banks' resignation, there was a full audit of the Property and Evidence Room supervised by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. This also showed that no other persons were responsible for the missing property.
In May 2014, an inspection of our General Orders was conducted by the Georgia Chiefs of Police and found our Property and Evidence policies and practices to be in compliance with State Certification standards.
The Lilburn Police Department is deeply saddened by the actions of someone who was once regarded as a loyal and dedicated member of the Department."
