Ex-Mississippi police chief faces new indictment

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A former Mississippi police chief already charged with demanding money or property in exchange for dropping criminal charges against people has been indicted on nine new counts.

Former Mendenhall Police Chief Donald “Bruce” Barlow was charged Feb. 5 with eight counts including conspiracy, extortion, soliciting bribes and witness tampering. He pleaded not guilty March 8.

A new indictment on Tuesday added nine additional counts.

The indictment says Barlow instructed “his officers to seize cash at every arrest, including money from people arrested for misdemeanors.”

When some of those people were arrested, authorities say Barlow offered to let them go or reduce charges if they forfeited their property and money.

The new indictment says Barlow sometimes told people to sign over their vehicles and pay him cash, in one case $4,500.
