Former Paoli officer pleads to conversionMay 27, 2020
From Local Sources
PAOLI — A former Paoli Police Department officer pleaded guilty to misdemeanor conversion Tuesday in Orange Superior Court.
Paoli Police Chief Randall Sanders requested Indiana State Police investigate Officer Tyler Phillips on Jan. 21 after it was alleged Phillips had taken several items of evidence to his residence instead of placing them into evidence at the police department.
State police say it was also alleged Phillips had conducted a controlled buy of methamphetamine and had kept the meth in his possession instead of placing it into evidence.
During the course of the investigation, police said, it was discovered Phillips had several cases where evidence was missing from the Paoli evidence room. It was also discovered Phillips had several items of evidence in his possession that had not been placed into evidence.
On Tuesday, police said, Special Prosecutor Dustin Houchin charged Phillips, who has since resigned from the force, with one misdemeanor count of conversion. Phillips subsequently pleaded guilty to the charge.
