Lyons Police Department
A former Lyons police officer has been sentenced to 5 years in prison, for using his badge to steal contraband cigarettes from dealers he was arresting.
Cuts to the police department in suburban Lyons are not sitting well with some residents. Now there are claims somebody’s stealing signs that support fired officers.
They lost their jobs last week when the near west suburb of Lyons took drastic measures to fight financial troubles.
