More charges for off-duty cop
Charges have been laid against a Calgary police officer in relation to an off-duty domestic dispute six months ago.
On May 28, 2018, an off-duty constable, who was on leave for an unrelated matter, was involved in a domestic dispute in Airdrie. Afterwards, the officer allegedly stole a service firearm from a secure locker in a district office.
Police were called by a friend concerned for his welfare, leading to the officer’s arrest.
On Friday, the man was charged with 10 offences including break and enter, theft, possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm and breach of recognizance.
The officer was previously charged with theft under $5,000, two counts of fraud under $5,000 and assault, among others.
The name of the accused was not released.
