Deputy Arrested for Criminal Recklessness

Marion County Criminal Investigators arrested Deputy Michael McKittrick early this morning on a preliminary charge of criminal recklessness, a D Felony.  Investigators were called to McKittrick’s apartment following the discharge of his personal high-powered rifle.  The single round did not cause physical injury to anyone, but traveled through other apartments.
McKittrick, who appeared to be intoxicated, asserted that he discharged the weapon because he thought there was an intruder in his apartment.  McKittrick was taken to Wishard Memorial Hospital for blood tests prior to his being taken to the Arrestee Processing Center.  Deputy McKittrick, who was assigned to the Jail Division,  has been placed on administrative leave pending resolution of the Internal Affairs investigation and the criminal proceedings.

Douglas A. Tibbs Arrested for Prescription Drug Burglaries

A former deputy of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, Douglas A. Tibbs, was arrested today at his attorney’s office for burglaries  arising from his apparent addiction to prescription medications.  Tibbs, 34 years of age, had been employed by the Sheriff’s Office since January 2004.  He resigned earlier this week at the commencement of a criminal investigation arising from prescription drug burglaries at a family friend’s residence.  Tibbs had been assigned to the Crime Stoppers Unit.

Prior to the arrest, Tibbs confessed to the burglaries and blamed his addiction on prescription pain medication for the crimes.  Tibbs was charged with two counts of burglary, one count of theft, and one count of possession of a controlled substance.  He is currently being held at the Arrestee Processing Center.
