You know the economy’s bad when you’ve got local officials selling off their “office supplies” to make an extra buck.
Former Morningside, MD Police Chief David Eichelberger was indicted on five counts after allegedly stealing a gun from the Morningside Police Department. To make matters worse, Eichelberger sold the Glock handgun from the back of a police cruiser to a civilian back in July — a month before Eichelberger was named chief of police.
“The person that the former chief sold the gun to eventually notified the mayor of the town of the sale,” Attorney Glenn Ivey said.
Maryland State Police are still investigating the case, but as of now Eichelberger is facing a five year prison sentence.
