FRACKVILLE, Pa. - A police chief suspended for a month for allegedly using department weapons and ammunition without permission says he's not sure how many guns he bought or sold for the department during 14 years on the one-man force.
Gilberton Chief Mark Kessler said at a news conference at his lawyer's office Tuesday that he currently has two of the guns, both M-16s, but records of the purchases and sales are locked in borough offices.
Gilberton solicitor Karen Domalakes wrote Kessler last week, asking for an inventory of the weapons currently in the department's possession and records of guns he sold.
Kessler's lawyer Joseph Nahas says they're concerned the borough council plans to fire Kessler before his suspension ends. Nahas says if that happens, he'll sue.
Domalakes didn't return a phone message.
