OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) — Two Oklahoma City Police Officers have been arrested within the last week.
The arrests were completely unrelated one officer was arrested last week during a prostitution sting and the other was taken into custody for several felonies including perjury and embezzlement charges, one thing they both have in common: they have both been working for OKCPD for more than ten years.
Police arrested Lt. Bryan Holloway on Friday for altering times on traffic citations to make it appear as if he was working overtime,
“It initially started when one of his supervisors realized there were some discrepancies in some of his paperwork,” said Capt. Valerie Littlejohn with OCPD, “It was learned he was altering these times to correlate with different times that he was working in overtime shift.”
According to court documents, Holloway falsified times on 77 different citations, embezzling over $13,000 in overtime pay,
“When they realized this they looked back at different overtime shifts that he worked, and it was determined that he was not working the shifts as he was supposed to be working,” Littlejohn said.
This is not Holloway’s first run-in with the law, he was arrested back in 2015 for negligent homicide, but police say he was likely not convicted,
“Right now, he is placed on administrative leave with pay, obviously, the criminal process will happen just depending on the investigation,” said Littlejohn.
Just last week, Msgt. Sergeant Jurden Brown was arrested in a prostitution bust, he had been working for the department for more than 20 years,
“Mr. Brown, he had made contact with one of our undercover officers there at the location,” said Littlejohn, “They had a conversation regarding the exchange of sexual acts and money, once that conversation was had, he was taken into custody shortly after.”
Oklahoma City Police say both Officer Holloway, and Brown will remain on paid administrative leave as they investigate,
“It’s always tough and unfortunate when we have to arrest another officer, but it’s important to note that our officers that are out handling these cases and investigating them, they’re going to handle each case like they do any other case regardless of who is involved with it,” Littlejohn said.
