A Schaumburg police officer has been suspended with pay for allegedly keeping a gun that had been turned in to the department, and the same officer also faces scrutiny for a case involving heroin that allegedly went missing from a crime scene, police said.
Now evidently the officer offered to buy the firearm but the people refused saying they wanted it “properly disposed of.” Which in my world means sold to an FFL to help close up the deficit. Evidently he felt that the law didn’t apply to him. Which given this is Illinois it isn’t a shocker.
