(BEDFORD) - A Bedford Police Department officer was arrested Saturday on warrants charging him with theft and official misconduct.

Indiana State Police arrested 42-year-old Edward Allen, of 1329 Peerless Rd., Saturday at 8:55 a.m. He posted a $755 cash bond and was released the same day.

The Bedford Board of Works placed Allen on unpaid administrative leave on September 9th, pending the outcome of the criminal investigation.

According to Bedford Police Chief Dennis Parsley, the investigation stems from Eddie Allen mishandling evidence - the theft of cash.

Allen has been an officer with the department for almost 7 years.

Chief Parsley requested Allen be put on unpaid administrative leave after telling the board members Indiana State Police had a video recording to back up the allegations of theft.

Chief Parsley reviewed the video and immediately placed Allen on paid administrative leave and then request a special meeting with the Board of Works.

In a press release, Chief Parsley says the department has opened an internal investigation to determine which if any rules or regulations of the department Allen violated. Chief Parsley says Indiana Code prevents any further action by the department until the investigation is complete.

"The Department takes such an allegation very seriously and will cooperate fully with the investigating agency. Although further comment would be inappropriate at this stage of the investigation it is our intention to be as transparent as the law allows in this unfortunate situation. We are determined to maintain the high standards the community expects of its police officers," Chief Parsley wrote.
