Altus Police Officers to be Arraigned Thursday

Posted: Updated:

ALTUS, Okla_ Bail was set Friday for two Altus police officers who were arrested after an investigation into stolen property.

Court records show the FBI used an Altus police detective to help with the sting that caught Russell Hansel and Jose Arce.  Back in October, the detective sold the two officers several tools that he said had been stolen from construction sites in another state. Then just last week, the detective approached Hansel about some guns that had been seized by Altus police. Investigators say Hansel said he could find a buyer in Southeast Oklahoma, where illegal aliens could buy guns.

Thursday, Hansel took one of those guns out of the police department, and that's when he was arrested. Hansel told police he only took the guns, because he suspected the detective was doing something illegal, and planned to turn him in to the sheriff.   

Hansel and Arce will be arraigned next Thursday.
