Ala Deputy Accused of Stealing While on Duty

ABBEVILLE, Ala. (AP) -- Authorities say a southeast Alabama deputy is charged with stealing from people he encountered while on patrol.
Henry County Sheriff William Maddox says state investigators arrested 32-year-old Nicholas Cheek on Thursday at the county courthouse. He is accused of four theft counts and a fifth charge of intimidating a witness.
Maddox says Cheek already has been fired.
The deputy allegedly confiscated and kept a gun while answering a domestic violence call in 2009. He's accused of taking other items including a gun and prescription medicine during traffic stops.
Maddox says Deputy Cheek had worked with the department since 2008, most recently as a sergeant supervising a shift.
Cheek is free on bond.
