RCSD: Former CPD Chief Randy Scott faces gun charges, failed to return service guns


    Former Columbia Police Chief and sheriff deputy, Randy Scott turned himself in to the authorities Thursday morning in connection with gun charges.

    According to the Richland County Sheriff's Department, Scott has been charged with two counts of breach of trust with fraudulent intent.

    Deputies say Scott was arrested on July 17, at his home in Richland County when deputies were searching for a wanted fugitive. During the search, investigators found several weapons and a gun lock box inside of Scott's home and later learned that Scott had failed to return a pistol and lock bock that was issued to him while he worked with the Richland County Sheriff's Department.

    Also in his possession was another pistol that belonged to the Columbia Police Department, which he failed to return when he resigned in May 2013.

    Additionally Lisa Grazioli, a former Richland County Sheriff deputy, was also charged with breach of trust for a shot gun found in Scott's home.

    During their investigation, it was determined that Grazioli failed to return a shot gun that belonged to the department before she resigned in 2017.

    Both Grazioli and Scott lived in the same home, the two turned themselves into the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center Thursday morning.
