LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The former chief of the Port of Los Angeles Police Department was sentenced to two years in prison for failing to report more than $1 million in income.

Ronald Jerome Boyd, 57, was also ordered to pay $305,054 in restitution and two years of supervised release after he gets out of prison, according to U.S. Attorney spokeswoman Tracy Webb.

He pleaded guilty on Feb. 3 to federal charges of tax evasion and making false statements to FBI agents.

Boyd was indicted in April 2015 following an investigation into charges he accepted a bribe in connection with the development of an official smartphone app called Portwatch to be marketed to other law enforcement agencies.

He served as the chief of police at the busiest container port in the country for more than a decade.
