SIMPSONVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Former Simpsonville police Chief Charles Reece and former Detective Ralph Bobo were indicted on state charges earlier this week, according to current Simpsonville police Chief Steve Moore.

According to indictments provided by the Attorney General's Office, Bobo and Reece were indicted on misconduct in office charges in connection with the impounding of a motorcycle in 2007.

The indictments said the charges stem from, "acts and omissions in the form of malfeasance, misfeasance, and nonfeasance" in their duties.

The document said Bobo and Reece were charged with the "improper forfeiture and collection of impound retrieval fees related to a 1975 Harley Davidson motorcycle."

The incident happened between May and August of 2007, according to the indictment.

Moore said he could not comment on the nature of the charges but said it came as a result of a joint investigation between the Simpsonville Police Department and the State Law Enforcement Division.

He said the investigation had been ongoing for more than a year. He said the indictments were handed down this week. He said more details would have to come from SLED.

Bobo was arrested in 2013 by SLED on charges of obstructing justice and misconduct in office.
