Morganfield Police Chief Geoff Deibler says Douglas took around $500 from a man at a traffic stop.
Douglas is now being charged with theft.
Chief Deibler says the man Douglas stole from came asking for his money, and a case number was never entered into evidence.
Deibler also says when asked about taking money, Douglas lied about it twice.
Douglas is charged with three counts of theft under $1,000 and four counts of official misconduct.
Officials say a judge has signed a summons and Douglas hasn’t been officially arrested.
According to officials, a court date has been set for Doulas on April 20, 2023.
