One more reason not to trust Cops.
Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelliâ€™s office has authorized the State Police to conduct an investigation into the role a convicted felon played in the Isle of Wight County Sheriffâ€™s Office.
Isle of Wight Commonwealthâ€™s Attorney Wayne Farmer said Tuesday that the investigation into the department â€œas it relates toâ€ the Jonathan Burns matter was authorized about a week ago.
Burns, a four-time convicted felon, worked for the sheriffâ€™s office as a volunteer aide, but apparently carried a Taser, wore a uniform and badge and even participated in some arrests. After serving as a volunteer, Burns was hired in March in a support capacity, but has since been terminated.
