FORT INDIANTOWN GAP (AP) – A police officer at Fort Indiantown Gap is on suspension after two other officers claimed he shot several deer and a bobcat while on duty.


Pennlive.com reported Saturday that an investigation of 47-year-old Richard Behne Jr. of Newport began two months ago.


A spokesman for the National Guard facility told Pennlive that Behne’s on suspension without pay while the Game Commission investigates.


A document from a search of Behne’s home last month says investigators took a bobcat skin, eight deer antlers and other items.


Behne told Pennlive he doesn’t expect to be charged but declined further comment.
