BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) - A newspaper report says a former administrator for the community of Bourbonnais who also runs an area gun shop stepped down from his post after the village board found out he was selling ammunition to police.

The (Kankakee) Daily Journal (https://bit.ly/1MzVeDX ) reports Gregg Spathis stepped down in July. He owns Sword, Weapons, Ammunition & Tactical Support in Manteno.

Mayor Paul Schore says Spathis sold about $4,000 in ammo to Bourbonnai police. He says Spathis should have been more forthcoming.

He says it appears Spathis was trying to save the village money, but it should have been done through the “proper channels.”

Spathis didn’t return calls for comment. He earned $102,000 a year as administrator.

The Better Government Association first reported on the ammunition sales.
