Former Tama Police Chief sentenced for stealing guns, vehicles from Tama PD

Posted: Updated:

A former chief of police of the Tama Police Department was sentenced to federal prison today. 

Jeffrey Filloon, 48, of Toledo, received prison term after a February 9 guilty plea to one count of possessing, selling and disposing of a stolen firearm and one count of making false statements to a FBI Special Agent. 

In a plea agreement, Filloon admitted that while serving as the Tama Police Chief from July 2013  through August 2015, he stole and sold three guns and four vehicles, that were in police impound, from the Tama Police Department for his own personal benefit. Filloon further admitted that he lied to a FBI Special Agent who was conducting an investigation into the missing property by claiming he had bought one of the impounded vehicles he took and sold, but Filloon had not bought it from the individual he claimed sold it to him. 

Filloon was sentenced to two months imprisonment and fined $500.  A special assessment of $200 was imposed, and he was ordered to make $1,625 restitution to the victims of his crimes, including the City of Tama. He must also serve a two-year term of supervised release after the prison term.
