MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Broward Sheriff’s Office investigators announced Monday they have arrested one of their own on theft charges.
Deputy Henry Guzman, 44, is accused of stealing DVDs and action figures from a Lauderdale Lakes Walmart, according to BSO.
Guzman was arrested Monday morning when he reported to Internal Affairs, police said.
Investigators said the 13-year veteran was suspended with pay and transported to Broward’s Main Jail.
Guzman entered the Walmart store while wearing his BSO uniform and stole DVDs and action figures with a value of $200, on three dates in May, investigators said.
“Absolutely no one is above the law. His actions are disgraceful, and in no way are a reflection of the good, hardworking men and women of the Broward Sheriff’s Office,”
Broward Sheriff Scott Israel said in a news release. “I commend the work of the Public Corruption Unit for its commitment to hold deputies accountable for any criminal activity.”
