LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say the police chief in Hillview has been convicted of lying to FBI agents.

Acting U.S. Attorney John E. Kuhn Jr. said Hillview Police Chief Glenn A. Caple was convicted Friday. He faces no more than five years in prison at sentencing scheduled for May 18.

Prosecutors said Caple lied when he was questioned by the FBI in April 2012 about directing police officers to move a backpack characterized as a mobile meth lab from property belonging to the city’s mayor.

Police officers testified that Caple asked an officer to move the backpack to a location believed to be off the mayor’s property and failed to report the incident to protect the mayor from bad publicity.

Caple’s attorney, Steve Romines, tells The Courier-Journal that he plans to appeal.
