Former Lafayette police officer Kevin Price, left, has resigned ahead of a meeting to discuss his employment after being charged with stealing and then reselling ammunition.

Lafayette police officer Kevin Price resigned Monday before a Lafayette Police Civil Service Commission executive session was to meet to determine his fate, according to a press release.

Price had been on paid administrative leave since Nov. 2 after an internal affairs investigation. Price has been accused of stealing and then selling ammunition owned by the city to a third party.

The Tippecanoe County prosecutor charged Price with theft and official misconduct on Nov. 13. He is preliminarily set to go to trial in March.
