LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Bullitt County police chief has been indicted by a federal grand and charged with lying about moving a meth lab from an elected official's property.
The indictment alleges that Hillview Police Chief Glenn Caple and other police officers were contacted by an elected official in January 2012 regarding a backpack suspected of containing a mobile meth lab, according to The Courier-Journal.
The indictment says when Caple learned the backpack was a mobile lab, he ordered an officer to move it off the official's property.
FBI agents later interviewed Caple about the mobile lab, and the indictment says he denied it had been found on the official's property and moved.
The indictment doesn't name the elected official.
Caple's attorney, Thomas Clay, says he's planning a "vigorous defense."
