A Lucas County grand jury indicted a sheriff’s deputy accused of stealing an inmate’s wallet during booking.
Deputy Gerald Crawford, a 23-year veteran, was indicted Tuesday on one count of theft from office, a fifth-degree felony. Detectives in court records said Deputy Crawford on Oct. 30 took a wallet with credit cards from Ray Lampley, 55, in the Lucas County jail.
Surveillance video captured the incident, according to court records.
He is on administrative leave with pay, Lt. Dave Carter said.
Deputy Crawford appeared Tuesday in Toledo Municipal Court. A judge released him on his own recognizance.
