A Gary, Ind., police officer was arrested Tuesday morning and is facing prison time on federal drug and weapons charges.

David B. Finley, 31, was arrested in Hammond following a weeks-long investigation by the FBI and the Gary Police Department.

Finley has been involved in drug sales and even used his position as an officer to get a discount on a gun purchase for someone who didn't qualify, the Post-Tribune reported, citing officials and sources.

“The vast majority of the men and women of the Gary Police Department are honest and hardworking people. This arrest should be a reminder to any officer who decides to cross the line and break the law that they will be arrested and prosecuted,” said Gary Chief Wade Ingram.

Finley is set to appear in court on Friday.
