Deputy Charged With Theft, Tampering With Evidence

ROGERSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has arrested a Hawkins County sheriff’s deputy on theft and related charges.
The TBI said in a news release Thursday night that 42-year-old Brad Depew of Church Hill was booked into the Hawkins County Jail after a search warrant was executed at his home looking for missing narcotics and other evidence from the sheriff’s office.
He was charged with one count of burglary, one count of theft and one count of tampering with evidence.
The TBI said Depew was a night shift deputy.
Investigators said they received a request last week from the District Attorney General to look into missing items from the evidence room in March.
