Columbia County Sheriff's Employee Accused Of Stealing $100,000
Columbia County Sheriff's deputies say one of their own legal assistants stole more than $100,000 from the sheriff's office.
Law enforcement arrested Pamela Foxx, 47, after investigators say a two-week audit lead to a lot of missing money.
Deputies say Foxx admitted to transferring the money into a personal account starting in 2007. She was arrested and charged with first degree grand theft.
“The charge against Pamela Foxx is not a reflection of the employees of the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office," Sheriff Mark Hunter said. “This was an isolated incident. The public can be assured that their Sheriff’s Office is staffed by the highest caliber of people who do a great job day in and day out. Although we are all saddened by this case, we are treating this like any other criminal investigation”.
Foxx is on administrative leave without pay pending a decision on her employment status with the sheriff's office.
