MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

A Murfreesboro police officer is accused of selling police-issued bulletproof vests in a Walgreen's parking lot.

Officer Jason Lowder is on administrative leave with pay and has been decommissioned from his duties as an officer pending the investigation into his alleged personal sale of police department property.

According to a police report, another officer saw a man placing a ballistic vest in the trunk of a car in the store's parking lot on Northfield Boulevard. The officer asked the man about the vest, and the man said he bought it from a website.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and Murfreesboro Police Department are investigating.

Lowder has been a Murfreesboro officer since 2006, the department said.
