2 Fruitland Park police officers in KKK


Two officers with the Fruitland Park Police Department are off the job after an investigation linked them to the Ku Klux Klan.
An investigation by the FBI named Deputy Chief David Borst and Cpl. George Hunnewell as members of the Klan.
Borst resigned, and Hunnewell was terminated Friday following a brief internal investigation, Fruitland Park Police Chief Terry Isaacs said.
Hunnewell had been demoted from corporal in 2013 for five write-ups for conduct, attitude, performance and timeless, Isaacs said.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement presented an investigative summary from an FBI source to Isaacs on Wednesday, stating the officers were associated with a “subversive organization.”
The investigation found no criminal wrongdoings.
“We are here, we are in place, and I want the public to know this type of conduct will not even be remotely tolerated,” Isaacs said.
