Cop Protects Criminal Son

An Apache Junction police commander influenced investigations of his son's alleged criminal behavior, leading to his own downfall and contributing to the resignations and retirements of three other officers.

Commander Brian Duncan improperly involved himself two years ago in cases where his son, Russell, was accused of such crimes as theft, burglary and domestic violence, according to investigative reports released by the city through an Arizona Public Records law request.
