PHOENIX (AP) - A Cochise County grand jury has indicted a former Douglas police officer on theft charges.

The Arizona Attorney General’s Office says Theodore Kulkens is accused of stealing nearly $15,000 in cash that had been placed into the Douglas Police Department’s property and evidence section.

Kulkens was the department’s former property and evidence section sergeant. He was fired in September 2013 for unrelated reasons.

In January 2015, Douglas police discovered money was missing from an evidence safe.

Douglas’ police chief asked the AG’s Office for outside assistance to investigate.

Agents from the Special Investigations Section working with Douglas police detectives and discovered Kulkens allegedly stole money from at least five different cases between 2007 and 2013.

It was unclear Friday if Kulkens has a lawyer yet.
