Former Morrison Police Lieutenant Sentenced to Prison

Anthony Joiner

Former Morrison police lieutenant Anthony Paul Joiner, DOB: 3-30-79, was sentenced today to 42 months in prison for stealing over $132,000 from the Town of Morrison between December, 2010 and February, 2016.

At the time of the crimes, Joiner was the second in command at the Morrison Police Department. His responsibilities included making bank deposits, arranging extra duty contracts with Bandimere Speedway, arranging the cell phone contract for the town’s authorized employee cell phones, and he was fleet manager.

Joiner diverted funds from the Town of Morrison to his personal account through a private fund he created called the “5280 Police Motors Memorial Fund”. This money was supposed to be used for trips to Washington D.C. for police officers during National Police Week.  

Joiner conducted numerous transactions where money which was intended for the Town of Morrison was deposited into the 5280 fund account and then used for his personal expenses. He also diverted funds from extra duty shift wages that were due the Town of Morrison into the 5280 fund. He also billed both Bandimere Speedway and the Town of Morrison for extra duty shifts worked at Bandimere.

“Anthony Joiner, a sworn peace officer with the Morrison Police Department, violated the public trust,” said DA Pete Weir, “The sentence imposed by Judge Hall sends a strong message that this conduct will be taken very seriously and offenders will be held accountable.”

Joiner was indicted in July, 2017. He pled guilty on December 18, 2017 to Attempt to Influence a Public Servant (F4); Embezzlement of Public Property (F5); Forgery (F5); Theft (F4).

The filing of a criminal charge is merely a formal accusation that an individual has committed a crime(s). A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. See Colo. RPC 3.6.
