Former Jailer Arrested for Allegedly Stealing from an Inmate

January 28, 2006 - Posted at 2:13 p.m. CST

JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) _ A former Jasper County jailer has been

arrested for allegedly stealing from a county inmate.

Officials say 39-year-old Robert Henson of Carthage, was

arrested yesterday and is being held at the Jasper County Jail.

He was arrested after a month-long investigation into money

allegedly missing from the account of an inmate at the jail. Henson

worked as a jailer for the Jasper County Sheriffs Department and

was assigned to the jail until about two weeks ago.

An internal audit discovered about one-thousand dollars missing

from the inmate's account near the end of December.
