SALT LAKE CITY - A retired Utah Highway Patrol trooper faces charges after allegedly giving his radar gun and taser to another officer.
65-year-old Martin Luther Turner, who retired from the UHP in January, faces one count of wrongful appropriation.
Charging documents say he gave the equipment to Thomas Decarlo, a West Bountiful Police officer. The charging documents also say Turner told an investigator he hoarded UHP equipment and the UHP office didn't keep a good inventory.
If convicted, Turner faces up to a year behind bars.
