CLAY, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a sheriff’s deputy who works at a jail in central New York stole narcotics while he was working and while he was off-duty.

The Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office says 50-year-old John Giocondo was charged Tuesday afternoon with official misconduct, petit larceny and criminal possession of a controlled substance.

The charges follow an internal investigation into a pair of drug thefts at the Onondaga County jail and in the town of Clay.

Details surrounding the thefts weren’t immediately available.

Sgt. Jon Seeber, a sheriff’s office spokesman, declined to comment on what type of narcotics were stolen.

Giocondo has worked as a deputy in the Custody Department for 26 years. He has been suspended without pay.

Giocondo is free on his own recognizance.

Attorney information wasn’t immediately known.
