BRYAN COUNTY, OK - A Texoma police chief was arrested Tuesday after state investigators say he took home a gun confiscated in a traffic stop four years ago. Acting Caddo Police Chief Troy Glover was booked into the Bryan County Jail on Tuesday.
According to an Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation affidavit, Glover took home a .44-caliber pistol from police evidence and let another man shoot it near his house. Glover said the man never returned the gun.
That man told an agent Glover told him police officers were allowed to take home guns from evidence after a certain amount of time if the owner did not claim them, and that Glover traded him the gun for another firearm, which Glover denies.
Glover also said he asked a Bryan County Sheriff's Deputy to try and get the gun back from the man. That deputy told OSBI agents he was never approached by Glover on such a request.
The City of Caddo released this statement Tuesday:
"Acting Chief Glover is currently on non-disciplinary leave unrelated to this matter."
City officials say they're currently working with an attorney to determine further action.
