A corrections officer has been arrested on charges he stole a bottle of insulin while on duty at the Houston County Jail. Bradley Adams, 33, was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor count of theft according to Sheriff Andy Hughes.

“A nurse noticed the insulin missing from the medical clinic at the jail and reported it,” Hughes said. “We reviewed surveillance video and determined that Adams took the drug.” The sheriff said Adams confessed to the crime when confronted. Hughes said the officer, who had been working at the jail for about a year, was terminated. No motive was revealed.

“I will not tolerate any abuse of the law,” said Hughes. “There is no room in this department for dishonesty.”
