I-Team: Officer charged with stealing gas retires
CRANSTON, R.I. —
A Pawtucket police officer charged with stealing gas from the city has retired, the NBC 10 I-Team reported.
Ken Provost was on the job for more than 30 years before he was arrested and charged by state police this summer.
He told NBC 10 he put in his retirement papers on Friday.
State police said he was caught on tape pumping city gas into a personal car and gas can.
He's free on personal recognizance and due in court Wednesday.
