DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — The case against Proctor’s former deputy police chief has concluded.
Troy Foucault, also a city councilor, pleaded guilty Monday to being in possession of an illegal short-barreled shotgun. The 34-year-old entered an Alford plea on the drug charge. It accused him of possessing morphine seized as evidence in a pharmacy burglary.
He didn’t admit to the drug crime but conceded there was enough evidence to convince a judge or jury he was illegally in possession of morphine.
The Duluth News Tribune reports a theft charge was dismissed as part of a plea agreement. If a judge accepts it, the convictions won’t be on his record if he complies with court-ordered sanctions as part of his two-year probation.
He resigned last month as deputy police chief.
