The second-in-command at a west Alabama sheriff’s office has been arrested on criminal charges.
Pickens County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Jonathan Gann was taken into custody Tuesday night. He is charged with second-degree theft of property and tampering with physical evidence. He has been released from jail.
