FORMER POLICE OFFICER CHRISTOPHER STILL CHARGED WITH FELONY THEFT ON DUTY

The complaint also charges that Still stole three firearms from the evidence locker

December 1, 2002

Today, Dauphin County detectives arrested Christopher Still, who was formerly employed with the Halifax Borough Police Department, for criminal conduct during his tenure as a police officer. The complaint charges that between 2019 and 2022, Still submitted fraudulent time sheets for hours worked, resulting in a theft of $98,754.50. The complaint also charges that Still stole three firearms from the evidence locker. Detective Robert Ligon of the Criminal Investigation Division of the Dauphin County District Attorney's Office led the investigation. Detective Ligon's affidavit charged that Still did not work during the times listed on the time sheets that he submitted to receive pay. Between 2019 and 2022, Still made no arrests, issued no citations, and rarely logged into the Halifax police record systems. Still's recorded hours at the Marysville Borough Police Department overlapped with his recorded hours at Halifax. Still's colleagues indicated that he was rarely present at the Halifax station and, when he was present, Still was not in uniform and did not complete work tasks. Upon learning of the allegations, the Criminal Investigation Division conducted an inventory of the Halifax Borough Police Department evidence room. The inventory check revealed three firearms were missing. The affidavit describes a statement by Still to Detective Ligon. After initially stating the firearms were properly destroyed pursuant to department policy, Still admitted that he took the three missing firearms and sold them to Reeser's Gun Shop for $500. Paperwork at Reeser's Gun Shop confirmed that Still sold two of the firearms to the shop. Police subsequently recovered those two firearms. As a result of the investigation, Detective Ligon charged Still with three counts of theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property for the missing firearms. These offenses are felonies of the second degree. The criminal complaint also charges one felony count of theft by deception for the taxpayer dollars received for unworked hours. A Winchester .243 Rifle remains missing. The Criminal Investigation Division continues its effort to recover the final missing firearm. If anyone has any information concerning the whereabouts of the missing firearm, please contact Detective Robert Ligon at 717-780-6200. The above charges are only allegations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. District Attorney Fran Chardo praised the efforts of Detective Robert Ligon, Deputy District Attorney Erin Varley, and Halifax Mayor Jeff Enders in connection with this investigation.
