Ala. Policeman Feared Missing Arrested In Vegas

DECATUR, Ala. (AP) - An Alabama policeman whose disappearance
last week triggered search parties has turned up alive and well but
under arrest in Las Vegas.

Sgt. Faron White is accused of staging a vanishing act to cover up a theft of $2,500 from his police department in the northern Alabama city of Decatur.

Police said the 48-year-old head of the city's organized crime unit was arrested in a Las Vegas hotel late Monday on a theft charge.

The officer's family reported him missing early Saturday after he failed to return home from work. Police found signs of a struggle in White's office and began a search.

Authorities said a 29-year-old woman, Sarah Richardson, was arrested at her home in Decatur and charged with helping White flee
the state.
