A second deputy came to the address on Heming Way to handle the drug case, which resulted in Shehata's arrest, officials said.
When Shehata asked to gather his belongings, he noted some missing items and complained to the Sheriff's Office regarding the alleged theft of a wallet, credit cards and $1,750 in cash.
This prompted the Professional Standards Section, which is affiliated with the Sheriff's Office, to launch an investigation into the missing items.
Officials said they secured evidence and found probable cause against Haddad for the theft of a wallet, cash and credit cards.
The investigative team then contacted the Osceola County Sheriff's Office regarding the illegal use of the credit cards in several separate incidents in that jurisdiction, authorities said.
This resulted in a joint investigative effort by both agencies. Osceola County investigators will handle the alleged crimes and charges that involve their region.
Officials in Osceola County served Haddad with a search warrant on Tuesday, arrested him and booked him at the county jail.
Haddad, who has been with the Orange County Sheriff's Office since April 2016, was immediately relieved of duty without pay and his law enforcement authority was revoked.
He will remain in this status as the court proceedings move forward and until the Professional Standards investigation is finished.
Haddad was previously assigned to East Orange County patrol duties.
