Little Rock police chief reprimanded for losing handgun

Little Rock officials have reprimanded the police chief for losing his city-issued handgun.

A written reprimand was issued to Police Chief Kenton Buckner on Tuesday after he reported one of his city-issued firearms as lost or stolen. Buckner said he moved over the Memorial Day weekend and can't find his backup handgun, a .40-caliber Glock 27.

The written reprimand was the only disciplinary action taken against Buckner, who said he will reimburse the city for the $460 firearm.

A city spokesman refused to comment on the case when contacted by an Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reporter.
