Charlottesville Police Clarify Amount of Military Equipment Received

Aug. 22, 2014

Figures released this week showed Charlottesville Police received nearly 100 5.56 millimeter rifles from the military. In fact, the Charlottesville Police Department only received 14.

The database also showed the city receiving 40 pieces of night vision equipment, when in actuality they never received any.

CBS19 is looking into why the discrepancy from the Department of Defense.
