ATHENS, Tenn. (WATE) - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is conducting a probe of the Athens Police Department over two missing weapons.

TBI officials say the weapons were seized by Athens police several years ago as part of a case the department was conducting, but they cannot be found.

The TBI is working to determine if they are simply missing or were stolen.

The investigation was requested by District Attorney General Steven Bebb.

Athens officials say the investigation does not involve any current members of the police department.
