NORMAN — City officials confirmed the Norman Police Department presented charges to the Cleveland County District Attorney’s Office involving a possible larceny by a city employee.
The suspect is a noncommissioned police department employee. The District Attorney will consider the evidence in determining whether formal criminal charges are warranted.
Further details of the suspected crime have not been released.
“This is an ongoing investigation,” City Manager Steve Lewis said. “I think it would be impossible to comment on it at this time.”
Lewis said that any larceny, regardless of the amount, is considered serious.
The employee is on administrative leave with pay pending the completion of the ongoing internal investigation, Lewis said.
