A former town marshal in Green Mountain Falls is facing charges of illegally selling guns from an evidence room and falsifying police reports.

Joshua David Patsch was arrested Friday on suspicion of selling nine handguns, shotguns and rifles from the town's evidence room and keeping the money.

The 24-year-old Patsch was first arrested June 30th on charges of perjury, attempting to influence a public servant and official misconduct.

Investigators say he had falsified police reports to arrest a friend's daughter outside his jurisdiction.

Patsch was fired in August.

He was arrested in the firearms case when he arrived in court for a hearing in the previous case. He is free on two thousand dollars bond.

Green Mountain Falls, a town of about 900, is ten miles northwest of Colorado Springs.
