OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A former police chief in the Oklahoma Panhandle town of Beaver is facing a charge of harboring a fugitive.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says Justin Lee Earls is suspected of helping a suspect avoid arrest on a felony warrant while Earls was police chief of the town of about 1,500, located about 190 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. The OSBI did not provide additional details and an agency spokesperson did not immediately return a phone call for comment Saturday.

Court documents do not list an attorney who could speak on Earls’ behalf.
