The officer in question, Terry Javery, is a 35 year old, 12-year veteran of the aforementioned police department, and was suspended last week after this arrest, according to department spokesman Matthew Gresham.
The investigation by police found that Javery purchased $669.44 worth of gasoline between July 7 and August 24 on a card that had a PIN number used, the PIN belonged to Javery. Another $1,215 in attempted purchases were declined, according to an arrest warrant issued. Even more charges could be added on in a different Parish, where the cop is accused of trying another 28 illegal transactions.
