CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — A former eastern Iowa police chief has been sentenced to two months in federal prison for stealing a police gun and lying to a federal agent.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (http://bit.ly/2vTJGp5 ) 48-year-old Jeffrey Filloon was sentenced Monday. The former Tama Police Chief had pleaded guilty to several charges in February.
