• Aug. 20,1994 headline: Upper Saddle River Cop Charged with Theft of Gun – “A 21-year-veteran of the Upper Saddle River Police Department, already facing theft charges, has been accused of taking marijuana that was being held as evidence in a criminal prosecution. Sgt. Gary Ahlers, 39, pleaded not guilty to charges of evidence tampering and official misconduct during a brief arraignment Friday morning in state Superior Court in Hackensack.
“A grand jury indicted him on the charges last month. Gary Ahlers faced “11.5 years in prison if convicted on the two charges.”
Earlier “Ahlers was suspended without pay from the department in January after he was arrested on charges that in 1990 he took a .22-caliber Ruger revolver that had been donated to the department and gave it to his father-in-law. Ahlers faces 18 years in prison on theft and official misconduct charges stemming from that incident, prosecutors say.”
The newspaper reports the revolver was recovered in his father-in-law’s home in Santa Fe.
