Sheriff's deputy becomes victim of theft

Someone stole sunglasses from the wrong person.

A Richmond County sheriff's deputy reported Thursday that he lost his $100 pair of Oakley sunglasses while arresting a suspect.

The deputy told a colleague that he went into a house on the 1500 block of Hicks Street on May 4 to arrest a wanted person. He left his sunglasses on a sofa on the front porch before walking into the dark house, and then left them there after making the arrest.

When the deputy came back from the jail several hours later, the sunglasses were gone. The homeowner hadn't seen them, and the deputy couldn't find them around the house. The deputy said he would prosecute for theft if a suspect was found.
