Charges Dropped- Pension Status Unknown

Larceny charges are being formally  dropped against a retired Springfield police officer who was found dead  of an apparent suicide on Monday. 

Sixty-eight-year-old Kevin Burnham was  scheduled to appear in Hampden Superior Court for a plea deal. 

He was  accused of stealing almost 400-thousand dollars from the Springfield  Police Department evidence locker. 

An attorney for the Springfield  Retirement Board says action could still be taken against  Burnham's pension, since he was charged with a crime.
