Dodge City Officer Cited For Illegal Hunting Practices

KSCB News - December 14, 2015 11:43 am

A Dodge City police officer and at least one other suspect have been cited for illegal deer hunting practices.
Members of the Kansas Wildlife and Parks received reports of a possible illegal deer hunt in Spearville Wednesday. The suspects allegedly used a two-way communication device.

Dodge City Police Chief Craig Mellecker says wildlife officers cited one of his officers who was allegedly involved in the incident. No disciplinary action has been taken on the officer, but an investigation is possible pending more information.

The charges that the suspects could face for using communication devices are misdemeanors if it�??s their first offense. The penalties are a fine between $500 and $1,000 or up to 6 months in jail and the possibility of hunting licenses revoked for up to one year.
