Muskogee, OK

A former Muskogee police officer has been sentenced to four years in prison for possession of stolen firearms and falsely claiming a military award.

Thirty-one-year-old Kris Ledford was sentenced Tuesday and is to report to federal authorities by noon May 15.

Ledford pleaded guilty in November to taking guns from the Muskogee Police Department property room and falsely claiming to have been awarded a Purple Heart by the military.

He was a crime scene investigator for the department at the time.
Ledford still faces charges in Muskogee, Tulsa, Wagoner and Cherokee counties of embezzlement, concealing stolen property, grand larceny and impersonating a police officer.
