A sheriff's deputy from Orange County found himself on the opposite side of a jail cell Tuesday, after he allegedly stole cash, credit cards, and a wallet from a crime scene.
Joseph Suheil Haddad is also accused of using the stolen credit cards in another county.
Officials say Haddad responded to a burglary Sunday, which evolved into a drug investigation. The person who reported the burglary was then arrested.
When that man asked deputies if he could gather his belongings, he noticed that items including $1,750 in cash and the credit cards were missing.
Haddad is charged with grand theft and was fired and stripped of his law enforcement powers.
He's been with the agency since 2016.
