SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -
A deputy no longer works at the Spartanburg County Detention Center after Sheriff Chuck Wright fired him following his arrest on shoplifting charges.
Charles Marshall, 23, was arrested Wednesday on two counts of shoplifting by Spartanburg police, according to deputies.
Deputies said Marshall worked at the county jail as a detention officer since he was employed by the sheriff's office in May 2012.
"I am disappointed in the actions of this deputy and I will not tolerate this kind of behavior," Wright said. "The deputy's employment with the sheriff's office has been terminated and we will continue to assist the Spartanburg Public Safety Department with their investigation."
Police said on April 25, Marshall walked into the Spartanburg Costco on West Blackstock Road, took a Sony Cyber-Shot camera and walked out with paying. The next day he returned and swiped a Garmin GPS, police said.
In both cases, police said Marshall removed the electronics from their boxes, checked out showing his own membership card, but did not pay for the devices.
After reviewing surveillance and cash register logs, Costco called police on Monday to report the thefts and warrants were signed on Marshall Wednesday, officers said. He was released from jail on bond.
Wright took control of the county detention center in 2011 and recently spoke with FOX Carolina's Adrian Acosta about his efforts to cut back on jail expenses, hiring more jailers and decreasing the turnover rate. Read more from that special report here.
