Elberta Police Chief Sells Ammo To Councilman

Elberta Police Chief Sells Ammo To Councilman

Posted: Updated:
ELBERTA, Alabama -

Elberta Police Chief Stanley DeVane sold three-thousand rounds of ammunition to a city councilman just days after the Sandy Hook school shooting and in the middle of the nation-wide ammo shortage.

Councilman Michael Hudson bought more than one-thousand dollars worth of .223 caliber ammunition from the Elberta Police Dept.

Police agencies don't have to pay sales tax when buying ammunition, but agencies aren't allowed to sell the product to outside groups or individuals.

Hudson says he returned the bullets to the police department as soon as he realized it was a problem.

Hudson admits it was a mistake- but says it wasn't criminal or unethical. 

The town of Elberta returned Councilman Hudson's money when he returned the three-thousand rounds.
