Former Kenner Police Officer Arrested  

 Kenner - On Friday, March 10, 2017, the Kenner Police Department and the U.S. Marshalís Gulf Coast Regional Task Force arrested Jan Michael Gregory, 32, at a residence in Kenner.  Gregory will be charged with the crimes of malfeasance in office (5-counts), felony theft (2-counts), and misdemeanor theft (3-counts).

 In February 2017, the Kenner Police Department initiated an investigation on Jan Michael Gregory who was employed as a Police Officer for stealing monies from Hispanic males that he arrested for operating a vehicle without a driverís license. 

 When Officer Gregory was confronted by members of the Internal Affairs Division, he immediately resigned (February 22, 2017) from the Kenner Police Department.  A search of Officer Gregoryís police unit revealed a personal gym bag inside the vehicle which contained two wallets that were eventually linked to two Hispanic males that Officer Gregory had arrested.

 As the result of a criminal investigation, detectives identified five individuals who were arrested by Officer Gregory between December 19, 2016 and February 5, 2017.  Each of the five individuals arrested were Hispanic males.  Consistently, all five victims reported a similar pattern of conduct which was committed by Officer Gregory while employed in his official capacity as a police officer with the Kenner Police Department, in which monies and wallets were stolen from those he stopped and arrested on traffic stops.    

 Officer Gregory was hired by the Kenner Police Department on September 19, 2012.   Gregory graduated from the ninth Kenner Police Department P.O.S.T. Academy on January 18, 2013.  He was assigned to the Kenner Police Patrol Division.

 At the time of this press release, Jan Michael Gregory remains in custody and no bond has been set.       

 Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser urges anyone with information concerning Jan Michael Gregory, to call Kenner Police Sergeant Adam Schouest (504) 712-2312, or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
