(WFAA ABC 8) PLANO, Texas – A Plano police officer has been arrested twice in the last three weeks for possession of child pornography and indecency with a child.

The department confirms that 44-year-old Richard Bradford has been a member of the patrol department since he joined the force in 1999.

Jail records show that on Dec. 23, 2014, Bradford was arrested for indecency with a child and brought to the Collin County Jail.

He was given a $50,000 bond. It is not yet clear when he bonded out, but on Thursday, he was arrested again, this time for possession of child pornography. He bonded out the same day after paying part of his $25,000 bond.

Plano police say the department is conducting its own internal investigation, and that the Collin County Sheriff’s Office will be handling the criminal investigation.

Bradford is on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigations.
