The New Athens police chief is on the wrong side of the law after being arrested for allegedly stealing an iPod and iPad from an evidence locker.  St. Clair County Sheriff's Captain Steve Johnson says 27 year old Dallas Hill is charged with official misconduct and theft.  

A month long investigation found Hill allegedly removed the items, used them, and then returned them.   Captain Johnson says investigating fellow officers is sometimes part of the job.  Hill turned himself in Monday afternoon at the St. Clair County Jail and posted bond.  He could get up to five years in prison.
