BEL AIR

Of­fice who lives in Per­ryville has been sus­pended with pay while he’s in­ves­ti­gated on charges of theft and theft by scheme, a sher­iff’s of­fice spokesper­son said Thurs­day.

Se­nior Deputy Car­los Jusino, 45, was served a crim­i­nal sum­mons Wed­nes­day charg­ing him with theft un­der $ 1,000, theft scheme and pro­vid­ing a false state­ment to a law en­force­ment of­fi­cer. He was sus­pended Sept. 15 when the in­ves­ti­ga­tion was launched. Jusino will re­main sus­pended un­til the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is com­plete.

The al­le­ga­tions do not in­volve in­mates, and the charges are con­sid­ered mis­de­meanors.

Jusino was hired by the Har­ford County Sher­iff’s Of­fice in Septem­ber 2000.

Sher­iff’s of­fice spokesper­son Cristie Kahler said she could not di­vulge de­tails of the al­leged theft or of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion against Jusino.

“We don’t want to dam­age the in­tegrity of the in- ves­ti­ga­tion,” Kahler said.

In a re­lease Kahler quoted Sher­iff Jef­frey Gahler, say­ing, “... He be­lieves cred­i­bil­ity is one of the most im­por­tant el­e­ments that de­fine the ef­fec­tive­ness of a law en­force­ment agency.”
