ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (WAVE) - A deputy jailer in Hardin County is facing a theft charge involving a large amount of cash.
David Eugene Ford, 58, of Clarkson, was arrested early this morning by the Hardin County Sheriff's Department.
Ford is accused of going to a home in the 11200 block of Salt River Road and taking more than $10,000 in cash. The exact amount of money taken was not listed in Ford’s arrest report.
