SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Shreveport police say one of their officers has been arrested in connection with an ongoing investigation conducted by the Caddo-Shreveport White Collar Crimes Task Force.

According to a statement released by SPD on Friday afternoon, 35-year-old Corporal Alvin Harvey is charged with a single count of misdemeanor theft.

The charge is the result of an investigation that began last month after a routine audit of fuel management logs turned up inconsistencies in gas purchases on the police department's account.

Chief of Police Willie Shaw was notified and immediately ordered a criminal investigation into the matter.

Shreveport Police detectives assigned to the Caddo-Shreveport White Collar Crimes Task Force conducted the inquiry and, based on information and evidence gathered during that process, obtained an arrest warrant for Harvey, who reportedly surrendered himself to authorities at the Caddo Correctional Center Friday evening.

Harvey, who joined the department in March of 2004, was initially placed on paid administrative leave back on February 7, 2014 amid the ongoing inquiry, which SPD spokesman Marcus Hines notes is in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Shreveport Municipal Fire and Police Civil Service Board which states: "When an employee is charged with a felony he shall, and if a misdemeanor he may, be immediately relieved of duty and placed on "departmental leave" for up to one week at full pay and with continuing seniority."
