Ex-Miller police chief is charged for missing evidence

MILLER, Mo. -- The ex-chief of police for the City of Miller was charged last month after investigators say they found missing evidence in his home.

The FBI and the Missouri State Highway Patrol arrested Joshua Bruce at his home in Christian County. Investigators say they found two guns in his home that had been reported missing from an evidence room at the police department.

Bruce served as the chief of police until May 2017. He posted a $10,000 bond on Aug. 1 after being charged on July 28 with two counts of stealing a firearm. If he's convicted, he could get a prison sentence up to four years for each count.
