MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) - A former Midwest City police officer has been charged with pawning police department items.

The Oklahoman reports (https://bit.ly/1mEl3rK ) that 45-year-old Lacky Harkins has been charged with 22 counts of making a false declaration of ownership to a pawnbroker, four counts of concealing stolen property and one count of embezzlement.

Harkins is accused of using his undercover Oklahoma driver’s license to pawn his two city-issued pistols and a shotgun multiple times, as well as pawning another officer’s pistol.

Prosecutors say these actions happened between November 2012 and October 2015. They allege he also pawned a digital camera and trailer owned by the city.

Police reported that Harkins admitted to taking about $1,500 from the special investigations unit.

An investigation into Harkins began after he pawned a guitar stolen from a church.
