Former Police Officer Sentenced for Fraud

On February 23, 2012, in Tacoma, Washington, Roy Alloway, of Bremerton, Washington, was sentenced to 24 months in prison and three years of supervised release for unlawful dealing in firearms and filing a false income tax return.  According to court documents, Alloway is a former Bremerton Police Officer, who for years was assigned to the West Puget Sound Narcotics Task Force.  Alloway purchased and sold guns without a federal firearms license – including nearly 600 guns purchased from Bremerton and Tacoma gun shops, and another 169 firearms purchased from a Shelton source.  Much of the conduct occurred while he was an active police officer.  As part of the plea agreement, Alloway is forfeiting 45 firearms to the government.  In addition, between 2007 and 2010, Alloway deposited cash, checks and money orders into his bank account totaling about $192,000 from the sale of firearms.  However, he failed to declare that income on his tax returns. As part of his plea agreement, Alloway has agreed to pay all back taxes.
