Former Decatur cop booked into Morgan Co. jail
DECATUR - Former Decatur police Sgt. Faron White, accused of stealing money from his office and staging his disappearance, is back in Morgan County from Las Vegas.
White, 48, was booked into the Morgan County Jail at 3:25 p.m. Friday, a jail spokesman said. White, a Decatur officer for 22 years, has been charged with first-degree theft and his bond set at $20,000.
Wow $20,000...that's all? Wonder how much they spent on the search for him? The flights and accommodations to and from Las Vegas? Not to mention the reportedly $70,000 he is also accused of stealing. And how much will the investigation cost? The lawyers? The prison term, if he gets one? I think he ought to be treated like all the marijuana businessmen he encountered over the years. Take all of his money and property and put him in prison for years and years and years.
