Guthrie police officer arrested
GUTHRIE, Oklahoma - A Guthrie police officer was arrested and jailed Wednesday after being charged with five counts of second-degree rape, two counts of lewd acts with a minor and one count of indecent proposal.
Officer Aaron Craig Lansdown, 29, was arrested by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, Logan County Assistant District Attorney Lori Hines said.
Lansdown joined the department four years ago, Guthrie Police Chief Damon Devereaux said.
"OSBI did the investigation and we're doing our own internal investigation as per policy," he said. "This type of behavior is taken very seriously and it's a big blow to our department and our community to have an officer brought up on charges, any charges, and especially these."
