    Tulsa police gadgets recovered; Air Force member is charged

    Several electronic gadgets that were stolen from the Tulsa Police Department were recovered when officers investigated a member of the military who was assigned to the agency's Special Investigations Division, police said.

    Alex Robert Turner was charged Monday with felony embezzlement and concealing stolen property, court records show.

    Turner, 22, is accused of taking dozens of electronic items, including a button-style hidden camera, police radio equipment and a GPS tracking device, while he worked with the Special Investigations Division's Intelligence Unit, according to his arrest report.

    Turner is employed by the Air Force, his arrest report states. Details of his assignment to the Police Department were unclear Tuesday.

    After the allegations surfaced, police officials ended Turner's assignment, and officers searched through his workspace to collect department-issued equipment.

    They found several items that had been reported stolen and arrested Turner on Aug. 27, records show.

    Police also combed through Turner's house and vehicle, where they discovered several other devices that had been stolen from the SID building. Other items were found hidden behind Turner's desk, his arrest report indicates.

    Surveillance footage shows Turner taking a portable hard drive from a police equipment room and leaving with it, the report states.

    Prosecutors allege that Turner made off with a laundry list of electronics, including a home theater system, MP3 players
    and audio recording equipment.

    Turner also worked part time for the computer repair company Geek Rescue, where he was accused of stealing a camcorder while on a house call to repair a customer's computer, owner Damon DoRemus said.

    Turner had worked an evening shift for the company for about a year and was fired when the client complained about the theft, Do- Remus said.

    An assistant district attorney who is handling the case could not be reached for comment.

    So is this guy a civilian employee of the Air Force, or is he an airman?

        That news report was horrible. Just reading through it once, you can find about 8 mistakes. You can tell that this is not a huge story that they cover because he isn't a crack reporter from what his writing shows. haha

            Probably a civilian, how would an airman have so much time for this?

              If the GS 9 security guard had been at his post instead of trying to burn a Cop for using four rounds to dispatch a deer, this could have been prevented!

                  I had a part time job as an E4 Infantryman. They were flexible with me and knew there would be weeks I could not work when I was in the field. Most Airmen have 9-5 jobs so can easily work part time elsewhere.
