Police Suspended Over Thefts

The Auburn Board of Pub­lic Works and Safety voted on Thurs­day to sus­pend two Auburn Police Offi­cers after more than $2,000 in cash was stolen from the police department’s evi­dence room. Offi­cer Steve Ryan was sus­pended for 35 days, and offi­cer Steve Val­lance got a 30 day sus­pen­sion. Now, the offi­cers have five days to appeal the sus­pen­sions. If they do, another hear­ing will be held. It all goes back to an inves­ti­ga­tion that was launched last Jan­u­ary, when a woman tried to pick up cash that was evi­dence in a case and dis­coverd that it was gone. That inves­ti­ga­tion lead to the dis­cov­ery that knives, bul­lets, and a shot­gun were also missing.
