LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A man who had the Little Rock police chief’s missing pistol when he was arrested in August has been sentenced to two years of probation.

The Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1QCfu9c ) 20-year-old Nathaniel Mitchell Sullivan was sentenced without saying how he got Police Chief Kenton Buckner’s .40-caliber Glock.

Sullivan also was ordered to pay a $500 fine, attend a theft-prevention class and complete 50 hours of community service.

Buckner has said he doesn’t know Sullivan and doesn’t know how Sullivan got the weapon.

Buckner reported the weapon missing in June, telling city officials the gun disappeared during a move to a new home over the Memorial Day weekend.

He was reprimanded for improper or negligent handling of city property and reimbursed the city the cost of the handgun.
