ALTAMONT, GRUNDY COUNTY -
The Grundy County Grand Jury returned indictments for a former Grundy County Sheriff’s Department captain accused of stealing handguns from the department’s evidence room.

Stone left his job with the department before the TBI case began.
The Altamont man has been charged with one count of official misconduct and one count of theft over $1,000.
Stone, 33 years old, turned himself in to TBI Agents at the Grundy County Jail Wednesday, where he was released after posting $7,500 bond.
