UNION CITY, Oklahoma -

The Union City police chief is on suspension following the arrest of a police officer.

News 9's cameras were there in January as that officer, Scottie Brothers, was booked into jail.

He's accused of stealing another officer's gun in 2010 and selling it to a felon. According to the Probable Cause affidavit, Brothers stole at least one gun from fellow officer William Ingram while he was house sitting for Ingram in May of 2010. At the time Ingram noticed the gun was missing but thought he just misplaced it.

Then in February of 2012, a felon called Ingram and said he had bought a gun from Brothers and it wasn't working. The felon asked Ingram if he could help him with it. When Ingram saw the gun he realized it was one of two that was missing from his house.

Ingram says the police chief ignored his request for an investigation. According to the mayor of Union City they have suspended the police chief until the matter of Scottie Brothers is cleared up.
