THP 3According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Coffee County District Attorney General Craig Northcott has requested TBI Agents to investigate a report of missing training aids (drugs) assigned to Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper and K9 handler Brent McCawley. THP reported the information to the TBI and the District Attorney General once they determined the training aids were missing.
