OR - Guns traded among Redmond, Ore. police

The Bulletin

REDMOND, Ore. (AP) -- Court documents show that guns and equipment taken from the Redmond Police Department armory by a former officer now under investigation were sold or traded to other officers.

The Bulletin newspaper in Bend reports that former police Lt. Larry Prince was described in the Deschutes County Circuit Court documents as a gun enthusiast with a "phenomenal" collection of rare and expensive firearms.

The 48-year-old Prince was also described as an often disorganized manager of the police armory that he supervised for about 10 years. The court records also say he had an affair with a woman he met while on duty.

Prince is under house arrest and faces more than a dozen counts of theft and official misconduct. He resigned earlier this week.
