deputy accused of theft, official misconduct
A former Marion County sheriff's deputy accused of theft, official misconduct and other charges was found dead over the weekend at a Wilsonville hotel, authorities say.
Sean Banks was found dead Saturday at the GuestHouse Inn & Suites near Interstates 5, according to the Marion County District Attorney's Office. It appears he killed himself.
Banks was indicted in 2019 on 25 counts of theft, official misconduct, tampering with physical evidence and computer crime, according to court records. The indictment alleges he stole guns, a camera and money.
The results of an investigation into his death weren't immediately available Monday morning.
