DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - A crime technician and police sergeant with the Dallas Police Department were fired Thursday following disciplinary hearings with Chief David Brown.

Sgt. Carlton Barnes and crime technician Dolly Chavarria both lost their jobs. Barnes worked in the Property Crimes Division. An internal investigation found that he failed to notify a homicide detective that he recognized a murder suspect from school. They also found him to be untruthful in a sworn affidavit and by doing so, he engaged in adverse conduct which resulted in a Tampering with Governmental Record charge filed against him.

Chavvarria, who was assigned to support services, applied for an extension of approved leave without pay. She failed to show up for work even after it was denied, according to an email from the department.

It was denied, but she failed to show up to work anyhow, Mitchell said.

Under civil service rules, both former employees have the right to appeal their firings.
