Jasper County sheriff's captain placed on paid leave pending internal investigation

Posted: Updated:

A captain with the Jasper County Sheriff's Office is on paid leave pending an internal investigation.

Sheriff Mitchel Newman confirms the investigation involves Captain Bob Walker.  Newman would not tell us what Walker was being investigated for, but said that the investigation was just starting, and would not last long.

Newman did tell us someone had made an accusation against Walker.

Sources tell 12News that it all stems from a case involving stolen firearms. 

The owner of the stolen guns claims Walker kept one of the weapons after the weapon had been recovered.

The gun's owner accuses Walker of getting it repaired and giving it to his son as a Christmas gift.
