PROVO -- Provo police have wrapped up their investigation into allegations that the police chief of Spanish Fork was shoplifting in their city.

The investigation began at the Dillard's department store at the Provo Towne Centre Mall on June 5. Security personnel noticed Spanish Fork Police Chief Dee Rosenbaum walking into the store carrying Dillard's shopping bags.

Provo police say he picked out three pair of pants and put them in a bag, but he never tried to leave the store.

He told them he uses the bags while shopping because the store does not provide shopping carts and he intended to pay for the pants.

The case has now been turned over to the city attorney for review.

Spanish Fork released a statement after receiving the results of the Provo City Police Department.

The statement reads in part: "The information contained in this release is consistent with the information that Spanish Fork City has received as a part of its review of the matter. Spanish Fork City continues to wait on the decision from the Provo City Prosecutor's office."

According to the Spanish Fork Police Department, Chief Rosenbaum is not on administrative leave and continues to work for Spanish Fork City.
