An Orange County deputy was arrested Tuesday on allegations he stole cash, credit cards and a wallet from a crime scene.
The case evolved into a narcotics investigation in which the person who reported the burglary, Sammy Shehata, was arrested for allegedly possessing marijuana.
He said Haddad was inside the house when he went to retrieve his things.
“He even said, ‘Well, I don’t have it.’ It’s not like I asked him if he had it,” said Haddad.
Shehata said when he got out jail, he had notifications from his bank that his credit cards had been used, so he reported it to the sheriff’s office.
According to the charging affidavit, Haddad and his wide were seen on camera using Shehata’s cards at Target and Walmart in Osceola County.
The report said they bought a baby crib, baby monitor, clothing, household goods and other baby supplies.
When questioned, Haddad told investigators he accidentally took the wallet while processing evidence and that it wasn’t until he got to Target that he realized he was using someone else’s credit card.
