In December of 2013, Neal Pinkston, Executive Assistant District Attorney, confirmed to Channel 3 that District Attorney Bill Cox was briefed on the investigation involving the Chattanooga Police property division.

Afterwards, Cox contacted the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to request their assistance with the investigation.

The CPD internal affairs detectives performed an inventory search to determine the extent of the missing evidence, and found a "significant" amount of drugs unaccounted for, including drugs seized during arrests and those collected from prescription pill drop-off containers.
