Former Macon County Cop Arrested for Alleged Theft
A former employee of the Macon County Sheriff's Office is now under arrest for allegedly stealing drug money.
Steve Jones was a captain for the department.
Macon County Sheriff Tom Schneider said an internal audit was conducted after Jones retired. The audit found that as far back as 2003, funds were being stolen from an account that held money confiscated from drug dealers.
Schneider said new policies have been put in place to maintain proper oversight of the funds.
