Former Deputy Sentenced
Monday, 04 February 2013

February 4-- Former Tattnall County Deputy Sheriff Ramsey Collins Arnold, 26, of Claxton, Georgia, was sentenced last week to 9 years in prison by Senior District Judge B. Avant Edenfield for distributing methamphetamine he had stolen from the evidence room of the Tattnall County Sheriff’s Office.

             During the guilty plea and sentencing hearings, the evidence showed that in 2011, while serving as a deputy sheriff in Tattnall County, Arnold began stealing methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana from the evidence room of the Tattnall County Sheriff’s Office and trading the drugs for oxycodone.  For example, in July 2011, Arnold stole approximately 185 grams of methamphetamine that remained in the evidence room after a criminal case had been completed.

            U.S. Attorney Tarver said, “No one is above the law. This defendant stole evidence that was used to charge and convict other defendants, which he then used to enter the drug trade.  He broke his oath and the trust given to him by the citizens of Tattnall County and became a criminal.  He will now join his new colleagues in federal prison.  Combating public corruption will continue to be a top priority for this Office.”
