TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) - Agents have arrested a woman who they say has been stealing from the Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office evidence vault for 20 years.

Alzada Jenkins, 64, was the evidence custodian in the late 1980's.

Jenkins is charged with stealing more than $60,000 from the evidence vault between the mid-1990s and 2011, said the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

FDLE began its investigation in March at the request of Suwannee County Sheriff Tony Cameron after deputies discovered money was missing from some cases.

At that time Jenkins was place on administrative suspension without pay.

Jenkins is charged with grand theft, official misconduct, and tampering with evidence. She turned herself over to the Suwannee County Jail Wednesday and has since been released.
