Former officer indicted, accused of stealing from suspect during arrest

- A former Athens-Clarke County Police officer is indicted on charges of theft by taking and violation of oath of office.

The suspect reported the incident to officers.

The police department and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation launched separate investigations.

Miller was placed on paid administrative leave, but then resigned days later.
