A former sheriff's deputy from the Williamson County Sheriff's Department was arrested Thursday after an investigation revealed that the officer allegedly confiscated cannabis evidence from task force seizures.
Caleb Craft, 27, is charged with theft over $500, possession of cannabis with intent to deliver, and official misconduct.
Police say Craft's mother, Wendy Craft, was arrested. She is charged with possession of cannabis between 30 to 500 grams, according to jail records.
The crimes were allegedly committed on Aug. 31.
According to court paperwork, Craft is accused of removing 120 grams of cannabis for his own personal use that he was supposed to deliver to the offices of the Southern Illinois Enforcement Group (SIEG).
Craft was a Williamson County sheriff's deputy who was assigned to the SIEG.
