It's been confirmed the FBI is now investigating the Columbia Police Department.
It's thought the federal agency is working with state police to check into charges and counter charges regarding a former police captain and the current police chief.
Former Captain Dave Navarro has accused Police Chief Ruben Santiago of trying to involve him in an effort to frame an assistant city manager who oversees the police department.
Navarro has said that Santiago wanted him to help plant a stolen gun and drugs in the car of Allison Baker in order to get him fired so personnel could be shifted.
Santiago has called that ridiculous, and says Navarro was fired for insubordination, possibly misappropriating money in a police charity, illegally shredding documents and secretly recording a conversation with Santiago.
