Charles Weaver

A former Little Rock police officer has been arrested after he removed money from the agency property room but never returned it to its rightful owners, police said.

Little Rock Police Department Lt. Sidney Allen said Charles Weaver was served with warrants and booked into the Pulaski County jail after he turned himself in Monday morning at Little Rock District Court. He faces two counts of forgery.

Weaver, 44, is accused of removing an unspecified amount of money from the Little Rock police property room on Feb. 19, 2013, in order to return it to its owners.

"The money was not returned to the owners, but he turned in receipts alleging the signatures were from the owners of the money," Allen wrote in an email.

Reached by phone, Allen said the money came from different cases Weaver had worked. He didn't know how much money was actually involved.

Allen said the crime was discovered during a routine department audit and he said additional charges could be filed.

"That's part of the investigation," he said. "They're still looking at it internally and criminally."

Weaver resigned from the force on Sept. 9, 2013.

Weaver was not listed as an inmate at the jail early Monday afternoon.
