Disgraced Former Police Officer Arrested for Illegal Possession of Firearms

MOREAU — A former police officer who resigned after a 2014 incident in which he roughed up a man whose car he illegally searched was arrested Monday for illegally possessing three guns, police said.

Shawn R. Glans, 38, of Moreau, a former Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office sergeant and South Glens Falls Police patrolman, was charged with one felony count of criminal possession of a weapon and one misdemeanor charge of criminal possession of a weapon after guns were seen at his home on Tanglewood Drive on Aug. 8, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Police said a “medical incident” resulted in officers going to the home, and several rifles and a handgun were noted.

Glans can’t possess guns because of a 2015 official misconduct conviction stemming from the on-duty incident in Halfmoon that led to his resignation. He was videotaped slapping a young man and cursing him when demanding to search his vehicle, authorities said.

Glans was arraigned in Malta Town Court and released pending prosecution.
