Two police officers are no longer with the city department here after a law enforcement report tied them to the Ku Klux Klan, an official said Monday.
Deputy Chief David Borst resigned and Officer George Hunnewell was fired last week, City Manager Gary La Venia said.
The link surfaced in a report from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement based on information from the FBI, which learned about the connection during a broader investigation, La Venia said. He didn't know what it was focused on.
Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokewoman Gretl Plessinger said she couldn't say what was in the report since it is "active intelligence."
An FBI spokesman in Jacksonville didn't immediately respond to a voicemail.http://news.yahoo.com/2-police-officers-tied-kkk-florida-200317913.html
