Former Cleveland Police Officer Arrested for Grand Larceny
Today, Attorney General Jim Hood announced the arrest of a former police officer with the City of Cleveland on a grand larceny charge.
Sandra Lomax, 35, of Robinsonville, was indicted on one count of grand larceny by the Bolivar County Grand Jury in March and arrested Wednesday, May 3. Lomax is accused of taking over $5,000 from a citizen while she was employed as a Cleveland police officer. She was booked and released on a $10,000 bond.
If convicted, Lomax faces up to 10 years in prison with a maximum fine of $10,000. A charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
This case was investigated by Investigator Anita Ray and will be prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Stanley Alexander.
