A Clarinda police officer is no longer on the force — and the county attorney’s investigating the ex-cop for possibly hawking drug paraphernalia.Jim Gibson, a four-year veteran of Clarinda’s police department, left the job May 17th, but Clarinda police chief Joe Newton won’t elaborate on his departure.
