Former Clay County Deputy's Badge Stolen

A former Clay County sheriff's deputy came home Sunday to find his home ransacked.

Donald Watson says he and his family came home from church services this afternoon and discovered that someone broke into their house, took cash, prescription medications and a $2,000 engagement ring. However, Watson is most concerned about his missing deputy's badge.

“It's disturbing that someone went in and invaded my home. But most of all that there's someone out there with this badge and this identification and I don't want anyone to get hurt,” says Watson.

Officials are still investigating the case. If you have any information you are asked to contact the Clay County Sheriff's Department.

    If he is former then should he still have his badge? just a question but I would assume if you are former then the badge should have already been submitted.
