GEORGETOWN, Del.- A Bridgeville police officer is facing theft and related charges following accusations that he stole cash from the department's evidence locker, the Delaware Attorney General's Office announced Wednesday.

Attorney General spokesman Jason Miller said the office's special investigations unit initiated a criminal investigation in July at the request of the Bridgeville Police Department, which had learned that cash was missing from its evidence section. 

Miller said that based on the investigation, an indictment was secured by the Sussex County Grand Jury on Oct. 1 charging 54-year-old Allen Parsons of Bridgeville with one count of theft over $1,500 and one count of official misconduct. Parsons was an officer with the rank of sergeant in the Bridgeville Police Department at the time of the investigation, according to Miller. He is no longer employed with the department, Miller said. He added that the specific dollar amount of the missing money is still under investigation. 

As a result of the criminal indictment, an arrest warrant was issued and Parsons was arrested on Oct. 3 by special investigators from the Attorney General's Office.  He was arraigned in Sussex County Superior Court and released on $3,000 unsecured bond.
