A police officer who was previously arrested and charged in connection with a domestic incident is now facing more charges for another similar situation that involved a police sidearm that was stolen from Calgary.

On May 28, 2018 an 11-year-member of the CPS, who was off-duty at the time, was allegedly involved in a domestic dispute in Airdrie.

Following the incident, the officer went to a District Office and allegedly stole a firearm from a secure locker inside the building.

Police were notified about the incident by a friend of the officer who called in, concerned about his welfare.

A subsequent investigation resulted in 10 charges against the officer including:

  • break and enter
  • theft (in relation to the firearm)
  • possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm
  • unsafe storage of a firearm
  • breach of recognizance

The same officer, who cannot be named due to the nature of the incidents, was also arrested and charged by RCMP for a domestic incident on August 3.

Officials say the member was off on an unrelated leave when the pair of incidents took place. He remains on a leave of absence.
