SUMNER COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – The now-former major of the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office has been indicted in an ongoing misconduct investigation.
Don Linzy, 55, is accused of taking narcotic prescription medication from the department’s evidence and property room.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation began looking into the matter on Aug. 28 at the request of Sheriff Sonny Weatherford.
Linzy resigned his position after the allegations surfaced.
He faces two counts of official misconduct, one count of theft, and five counts of simple possession of a controlled substance.
Linzy was booked into the Sumner County jail and bonded out later Wednesday night. He’s due in court Sept. 25 in Gallatin.
