Investigator Testifies in Former West Memphis Cop's Trial

December 5, 2003 - Posted at 7:58 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A casino regular testified that a former law officer accused of corruption likely could not have won as much at casinos as he claimed.

Former West Memphis police officer Joseph Applegate is on trial in federal court in Little Rock on theft and money laundering charges.  He's accused of skimming tens of thousands of dollars from cash seized during a January 23, 2001 traffic stop.

Applegate told authorities who found $25,000 in cash in a search of his home that the money came from various sources, including an inheritance and as much as $20,000 in casino winnings.

A criminal investigator for the Mississippi Gaming Commission testified yesterday the most Applegate won was $2,329 at the Grand Casino in Tunica for all of 2001.

A motorist testified earlier that Applegate seized nearly $800,000 from him during a traffic stop.  About $200,000 less was reported as being seized.

Trial is to continue today.
