Former Altus Cop Pleads Guilty to Stolen Property Charges

ALTUS, Okla_ One of the Altus police officers allegedly involved in corruption involving receiving stolen property has pleaded guilty.

Former APD Officer Jose Arce entered his guilty plea today to three counts of attempting to receive stolen property and one count of conspiracy to commit receiving stolen property.

Investigators said Arce admitted he and Hansel were trying to buy stolen tools from APD Officer Bill Perkins, who was working undercover for the FBI. He also reportedly admitted to receiving stolen tools from Perkins on two prior occasions.

As a part of the plea deal, a judge sentenced Arce to a two year deferred sentence for each of the three counts of attempting to receive stolen property and five years deferred for the conspiracy charge. He was ordered to serve 230 days in Jackson County Jail with credit for time already served. He was ordered to pay a total of $1,000 for the deferred sentences. Arce is also required to give up his CLEET certification, which will prevent him from working in Oklahoma law enforcement again.


Arce and Former APD Officer Russell Hansel were being investigated by the FBI and the Jackson County Sheriff's office. They were both charged in February.
