Embattled Police Technician No Longer Works For Department

Posted September 10, 2000

— A Durham police technician who mishandled key evidence is no longer working for the department.

Bruce Preiss had been on leave since he admitted to mistakenly throwing away evidence in a domestic violence case.

Police officials will not say if Preiss was fired, resigned or transferred.

Chief Teresa Chambers says there is a new supervisor in charge of that department which will be closely monitored for the next few months.
