CANBY, Ore. (AP) — CANBY, Ore. (AP) ? The Canby police chief has resigned while facing possible termination resulting from FBI and city investigations into whether he concealed or failed to investigate an officer's steroid abuse.

Greg Kroeplin had been chief of the suburban Portland farming community since January 2006.

The Oregonian reported the 48-year-old Kroeplin had been on paid leave since Nov. 17, a day after the Portland newspaper ran a story with details of the allegations.

The FBI alleged Kroeplin failed to address numerous complaints about former Officer Jason Deason's steroid abuse, enabling Deason to buy steroids on the job and in uniform without any serious investigation.

Unless you want to buy steroids. Then it's probably ok.

Ya apparently both the officers and the chief look the other way.
