LOGAN, Utah (AP) - A former Utah sheriff’s deputy is facing criminal charges after an investigation by the Utah attorney general’s office found he stole two cases of ammunition and sold them at pawn shops.

Cache County Sheriff Lynn Nelson says 31-year-old Justin Curtis was fired in November after the report was released.

Curtis is scheduled to appear in Logan Municipal Court on April 22 on misdemeanor theft charges.

The Herald Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1lExgtm ) Curtis is the son of the assistant police chief in Logan, so allegations about Curtis were forwarded to the attorney general’s office to investigate.

Messages left with Curtis‘ attorney Shannon Demler were not immediately returned Thursday afternoon.

Nelson says the ammunition was worth several hundred dollars.
