An IRS agent testified in eastern Iowa on Monday he didn’t miscount funds seized in a 1997 gambling ring investigation. The testimony came during the first day of fired Davenport Police Sergeant Greg Collins’ trial. Feds have charged the 47-year-old former head of the vice unit with taking nearly four grand seized by a task force investigating an alleged gambling ring. Authorities say they found the missing money in cigar boxes at his home. They also say Collins returned guns to a drug user. But Collins maintains the money was miscounted. And he says he did not know the federal informant he gave the guns to was a drug user. If convicted, Collins could get 20 years in prison and a $500,000 fine. He also faces separate charges of theft, nonfelonious misconduct in office and fraudulent practices. His trial on those charges is set for Aug. 19.
