In a statement, Chief Lindsey said, "I'm cleaning it up. I'm working through this the best way I know how."

The Chief added, "If there is anyone on this task force I don't trust, they will be investigated and will be off this task force."

The theft charge is a misdeamenor, and Clark will be required to pay fines.
