Sanford, FL, March 26, 2012: In response to the recent article in the Orlando Sentinel, the information was not provided to the media through an authorized source at the Sanford Police Department, but possibly by a leak from within the department.  The information in the article is consistent with the information provided to the State Attorney’s office by the police department.   
“We do not condone these unauthorized leaks of information,” said City Manager, Norton Bonaparte, Jr.  “Acting Chief Scott will be doing an internal investigation within the Sanford  Police Department as this type of action compromises the integrity of the law enforcement agency which has pledged to uphold the law”.  
Mr. Bonaparte stated that disciplinary action including possible termination will be taken against anyone found to have leaked the information.
