Former Cascade County Undersheriff John Stevens is facing a felony theft charge; according to KRTV:

During his tenure, Stevens was issued several firearms including a Glock 27 40 S&W, a Rock River Arms LAR 15 rifle, and a Glock 43 that were purchased with Cascade County monies. When Stevens retired from the CCSO, he took the Glock 27 40 S&W, the Rock River Arms LAR 15 rifle, and the Glock 43. Court documents state he was not authorized to take the guns and that no documentation was created to show he took them.

During a press conference on Thursday afternoon with County Attorney Josh Racki, Sheriff Jesse Slaughter said that “likely be at least one other person that will be charged in this matter,” but declined to provide any additional details at this point. Slaughter said that more information will likely be released next week.
