Oregon trooper pleads guilty in fuel card case, quits

The Associated Press

PORTLAND  — A state police captain once in charge of internal affairs who was accused of using his department fuel card for his personal vehicle has made restitution of nearly $500, resigned and been sentenced to three days in jail.

The police said in a statement that 39-year-old Jeff Randall Lanz pleaded guilty Thursday to official misconduct.

Police had said he misused the card between October and April, and the payment he made Wednesday covered all six incidents. It was for $485.19.

Lanz joined the police in 1999. He was promoted in July 2011 from the Oregon State University office to become head of the Office of Professional Standards.

His sentence includes a year of probation.
