Officer Linked To Release Of Ambulance Sex Tape Fired...But Chief Having Sex Still On The Job

A southeastern New Mexico officer has been fired after authorities say he hid a video camera and released footage of his police chief having sex in the back of an ambulance.

Jal City Manager Bob Gallagher announced on Thursday that Sgt. Joshua Terrell was recently fired for eight violations of the city's personnel manual. He called Terrell's actions a "disgrace to the department and to our citizens."

The firing comes after Jal Police Chief Larry Burns was suspended for two-week in connection with the secret sex footage. Two television stations aired portions of a video of Burns having sex with a female companion inside a Jal ambulance parked where the city's ambulances are kept.

No phone number was listed for Terrell.
