SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. -

Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright fired one of his deputies, after that deputy was accused of stealing from Costco.

Spartanburg police arrested Charles Alexander Marshall Wednesday. They say Marshall went into Costco on West Blackstock Road on April 25th, picked up a Sony Cyber-Shot camera and left the business without paying for the item.

Then on April 26th, cops say Marshall went back to Costco and selected a Garmin GPS. They say once again, Marshall left the store without paying for the item.

Police reviewed the evidence, then obtained a warrant for Marshall's arrest. He was booked into the Spartanburg County Detention Center and released.

Marshall worked at the Detention Center as a detention officer.

Sheriff Chuck Wright says, "This is a very unusual situation that the Sheriff's Office is facing. I am disappointed in the actions of this deputy and I will not tolerate this kind of behavior. The deputy's employment with the Sheriff's Office has been terminated and we will continue to assist the Spartanburg Public Safety Department with their investigation."
