Sheriff’s deputy indicted on theft of thousands from nonprofit

CHRISTIAN COUNTY, KY – Kentucky State Police Post 2 says a sheriff’s deputy was arrested Friday regarding theft of thousands of dollars from a nonprofit organization in the county he serves.

Investigators say Christian County Sheriff’s Department deputy Steve Tucker was indicted and arrested Friday on a charge of theft by unlawful taking of more than $10,000.

KSP says the charge stems from an investigation into a theft from the Christian County Juvenile Services Foundation that was reported to the KSP Drug Enforcement/Special Investigations west branch in  November. The Christian County Chamber of Commerce lists the foundation as a nonprofit organization that provides juvenile and rehabilitation services.

Trucker was jailed in the Christian County Jail.

KSP Post 2 says its investigation into the theft is ongoing.
