LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A Lafayette police officer has been officially charged after being accused of selling department-owned ammunition. According to court documents, officer Kevin Price was charged Tuesday with official misconduct and theft. 

The investigation uncovered text messages between Price and the buyer. Price sold ammunition without authorization from the department. He was placed on administrative leave. An investigation into this incident was also conducted and forwarded to the chief’s office for review.

Chief Patrick Flannelly confirmed Price is on paid administrative leave until the merit board conducts a hearing. A date has not yet been set for that hearing.
