POLICE COMMANDER RESIGNS AFTER VIDEO SHOWS HIM STEALING DRUGS FROM POLICE STORAGE UNIT

“…a good, honest, decent person became another victim to the power and control of addiction,” police say
Prescott Valley Police Department commander Arthur Askew has resigned after video evidence showed him removing prescription drugs that had previously been turned in by the public for destruction from the department’s drug storage vault.

According to a release from the department, information was received regarding suspicious activity in the department’s property and evidence room, prompting the Chief of Police to direct that a motion activated still camera and a covert video surveillance camera be placed in the drug vault.

Video evidence showed Askew removing prescription drugs from the discard box and then leave the vault on two separate occasions.

Askew was reportedly immediately served with a Notice of Investigation and placed on administrative leave, then chose to resign effective Jan. 2, 2015.
