A former Chillicothe Police officer charged with three felony counts of stealing $750 or more was bound over to Division One of Livingston County Circuit Court on March 15th.
Thirty-nine-year-old Jeremy Don Stephens of Brookfield waived his right to a preliminary hearing. He is scheduled for an arraignment in Division One on April 13th.
A probable cause statement from the Highway Patrol accuses Stephens of stealing $2,103 cash and two handguns from the Chillicothe Police Department evidence room while he was employed as an evidence officer. The guns were allegedly pawned for money at a pawn shop in Chillicothe.
The Patrol’s Division of Drug and Crime Control initiated an investigation in October at the request of the Chillicothe Police.
