A former Lawrenceville police officer was arrested last week after officers witnessed the suspect purchasing methamphetamine.
Gabrel James Loyd, 31, of 1083 Spruce Creek Lane in Lawrenceville, had a Dekalb County police badge and a Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Department identification card in his possession at the time of the arrest.
A subsequent criminal history check revealed that Loyd had an outstanding warrant for aggravated stalking in Gwinnett County.
According to the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Department, Loyd was not employed as a deputy, but had been deputized in conjunction with his duties as an officer with the Lawrenceville Police Department.
The Lawrenceville Police Department confirmed that Loyd was a former officer with the agency. Loyd's employment status with the Dekalb County Police Department is unknown.
Loyd was charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of a drug related object.
Other arrests made by the Auburn Police Department last week include:
• Ricky Joe Fontes, 27, Auburn, outstanding warrant.
After I commented on this article I found more of my stolen equipment online. His wife Amanda Loyd is selling it. LPD couldn't find their a$$ with both hands. Either that or its a coverup. You decide. I told the DA I had proof it was mine but he said he knew it was and that he had seen all of it. But no charges and they won't help me get it back.Heres the link. Corruption at its finest.
