Officer Dan Hamlin Arrested for Grand Theft

A JSO officer has been arrested on 26 counts of official misconduct and grand theft.

JSO said officer Dan Hamlin was arrested after a warrant was issued Wednesday.

Undersheriff Dwain Senterfitt said Hamlin was fraudulently claiming overtime. Senterfitt said Hamlin claimed he was consulting with the State Attorney's Office on pre-trial cases but listed a state attorney on his timesheet who was no longer at the office.

According to JSO, this case has been under investigation since June. Senterfitt said Hamlin was made aware at the time, and the overtime stopped.

Senterfitt said Hamlin has resigned.
