Bohannon and Stevens have been with the SPD for 11 and 13 years, respectively. Adamson has served with the GCSO for three years and had 11 years of law enforcement experience prior to that. Pounds is a 21-year veteran of the GCSO. All four are on paid administrative leave for the duration of the investigations.
