A former Park City police officer was found dead of an apparent suicide in South Salt Lake the same day he was to be sentenced for embezzlement.
Ex-Sgt. Robert Lucking, 50, faced a prison term of up to 15 years after he pleaded guilty in November to theft and failure to keep or pay public money. The former sergeant, who resigned months before the charges were filed in May, had agreed to pay $50,000 in restitution as part of a plea agreement.
Lucking's body was found inside a car parked inside a warehouse where he worked, at 139 E. 3900 South, in South Salt Lake Monday morning, according to South Salt Lake police spokesman Gary Keller.
