Police in Florida said an officer who attempted to purchase ammunition to hide the fact that he lost 40 rounds was suspended for five weeks.

The Coral Springs Police Department said officials received a call in June from the bullet company saying an order placed by Louis Coldros, 44, was being processed. Coldros was sent home to retrieve the magazines for his gun, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Thursday.

Coldros returned to say his vest and two 20-round magazines it contained were missing and must have been stolen from his car. However, investigators said the missing items were found in a SWAT vehicle July 13 and may have been left there June 5.

"When I realized equipment was missing from my police car, I expected to be held accountable. In an attempt to avoid repercussions and face further criticism from my supervisors, I attempted to purchase and replace the missing items on my own. With 18 years in law enforcement, I should have known better and disclosed the missing items right away," Coldros said in an Aug. 15 letter to Chief Tony Pustizzi.

Coldros was issued a five-week unpaid suspension.
