PORTALES — A former Roosevelt County sheriff’s deputy on Friday was indicted on allegations of receiving stolen property.

Christopher F. McCasland, 34, of Portales is accused in connection with the theft of a television set and other items from Colfax County. McCasland was a law officer in Colfax County at the time of the thefts and “had even taken the report of the burglary where the property was stolen,” according to a news release from District Attorney Andrea Reeb.

McCasland is charged with receiving stolen property valued at more than $500, but not more than $2,500.

McCasland is no longer with the Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Department.

His attorney said last month the charges are the result of a marital dispute and that McCasland is innocent.
