Governor Tom Corbett's son-in-law is one step closer to losing his job as a Philadelphia police officer.
A police spokesman says Gerold Gibson has been suspended without pay and with intent to dismiss.
That word comes in the wake of an internal investigation into allegations of misconduct.
Gibson is a narcotics officer who is married to the governor's daughter, Kate.
He has not been charged with any crime.
But, the internal investigation was prompted by fellow officers' suspicions that he stole items from crime scenes.
The case has been referred to the Philadelphia district attorney's office.
