LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A Lafayette police officer has resigned over charges of theft and official misconduct.

Kevin Price submitted his resignation Monday after being accused of selling department-owned ammunition.

On Oct. 25, LPD was notified of the possible crime and conducted an investigation.

It indicated that Price sold the ammunition to a third party without the consent from the department. As previously reported, the investigation also uncovered text messages between Price and the buyer. 

Then on Nov. 2, an internal affairs investigation was completed and Price was placed on administrative leave.

Price's resignation was submitted before his merit board hearing, which was scheduled for 4 p.m. Monday.
