Meeker Co. deputy accused of stealing drugs, toy drive toys

A Meeker County sheriff’s office deputy was arrested for allegedly stealing drugs from the county's drop box and toys from a holiday toy drive.

Deputy Travis Sebring was suspected of taking controlled substances out of the Meeker County drug take back drop box. He was arrested on Jan. 26 after he was found in possession of the drugs.

A search warrant for his house found evidence of the theft and a small amount of marijuana, as well as toys he allegedly stole from a Christmas toy drive. The Meeker County sheriff’s office does not believe any other employees are involved.

Sebring was formally charged Thursday and made his first court appearance Friday morning. Sebring has resigned from his position as a Meeker County deputy.
