PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A jury in Philadelphia could not reach a verdict on theft charges against Gov. Tom Corbett’s ex-son-in-law.

Prosecutors say they’ll retry fired city police officer Gerald Gibson.

Authorities say the 44-year-old took bait money from a vehicle during an FBI sting on Jan. 31, 2013. Gibson, then a narcotics officer, had been told the car belonged to a suspect.

His attorney argued at trial that Gibson planned to turn in the money at the end of shift, but was confronted by investigators before he could do so.

A judge declared a mistrial Friday after jurors couldn’t reach a unanimous verdict on counts of theft, obstruction and receiving stolen property.

Gibson and Corbett’s daughter have divorced since his arrest.

The new trial date is Jan. 26.
