ELK GROVE (CBS13) — A former Elk Grove Police Department civilian employee was arrested Tuesday on embezzlement and grand theft charges.
Sources say Kristopher Packwood resigned from his position at the police department before being arrested by Elk Grove police officers and taken to the Sacramento County Main Jail. He was released the Tuesday evening on bail.
After a year-long investigation, he was arrested on three counts of grand theft and one count of embezzlement of an elder/dependent adult.
According to the Elk Grove Police Department, Packwood worked as a civilian Crime Prevention Specialist for approximately six years. The department spokesperson said the alleged crimes did not take place during work hours.
