WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - The former chief firearms expert for the Delaware State Police has been arrested on charges of theft and falsifying business records.

State police say 62-year-old Carl M. Rone of Philadelphia turned himself in Tuesday after being indicted by a Kent County grand jury on Monday.

Rone was charged with one count of felony theft and one count of falsifying business records. He was released on $2,000 unsecured bond.

It was not immediately clear whether Rone has an attorney.

Authorities say investigators learned in November that Rone was paid more than $30,000 after submitting time sheets for 79 days in 2016 and 2017 when he did not report for work.

Rone, who was frequently called by prosecutors to testify as a ballistics expert, had been suspended from his duties in January.
