HILLSBORO, Ore. (KOIN) -- The Hillsboro police officer who spread maple syrup on the benches at a TriMet MAX stop has been reassigned.
Hillsboro Police Sgt. Bruce Kelley, a TriMet transit police supervisor, admitted spreading the syrup this past August to deal with continuing issues related to crime overnight.
Records show he bought two gallon jugs of maple syrup and expensed both to the city.
He said his goal was to keep away overnight crime: "Loitering, non-payment of fare, alcohol abuse," said Hillsboro Spokesman Lt. Mike Rouches in a previous KOIN 6 News report. "There's been some fights and disturbances there."
Kelley spent two years in the transit division. He's now going back on patrol.
