DECATUR, Ala. (AP) - The FBI has filed a criminal complaint
against a former Decatur police supervisor accused of stealing
evidence money from the department's Organized Crime Unit, then
fleeing to Las Vegas.
According to court documents filed this month, federal agents
found former Decatur police Sgt. Faron White in Las Vegas with
$10,000, including two $100 bills seized by his unit.
FBI Special Agent Patrick W. Stokes said in the complaint that
authorities found the bills with serial numbers that matched bills
seized in 2008 and should have been in the unit's safe.
Stokes also stated that White, who is accused of staging his own
disappearance before fleeing, stole more than $5,000 from the
department. He remains in federal custody at the Shelby County Jail
in Columbiana, with a hearing set for Friday in federal court in
