Former Trooper arrested for stealing evidence
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Former Trooper Sgt. Jeremy Stone has been arrested on charges of scheme to defraud, theft and misapplication of property, Alaska State Trooper said.
The theft stems from a case in May of 2019 when the Anchor Point Post noted a large sum of money was missing.
The Alaska Bureau of Investigations stepped in to audit the evidence facility and found that five items, with a total value of $20,000, had gone missing.
The bureau determined Stone had been responsible for the missing evidence. Stone has since been indicted by a Kenai Grand jury for several charges related to the theft of the money and evidence items.
On Friday, U.S. Marshals arrested stone, who was found in Coupeville, Washington.
