CARROLLTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police say the Carroll County sheriff has been arrested on charges stemming from the theft of prescription painkillers.

State police said Wednesday that Sheriff Jamie Kinman was charged with two counts of burglary and two counts of theft of a controlled substance.

Lt. Michael Webb, a state police spokesman, says Kinman turned himself in to authorities in Grant County. Webb says the sheriff allegedly entered a residence and took prescription pain medication.
