The United States Postal Inspection Service has arrested India Middleton, a deputy sheriff with the Arlington County Sheriff’s Office. Middleton was indicted in Georgia on the charge of Conspiracy to Commit Wire Fraud.
“The Arlington County Sheriff’s Office is committed to holding ourselves accountable to the highest professional standards to ensure the public’s trust,” said Sheriff Beth Arthur. “Once we became aware of the allegations, we cooperated with the United States Postal Inspection Service and upon arrest, we immediately initiated an internal administrative investigation. We take any and all allegations of staff misconduct seriously and can ensure the public that a comprehensive internal investigation will be conducted.”
Ms. Middleton has been with the agency since September 2015 and is currently assigned to Court Security. She has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of an internal administrative investigation.
