BSO Charges Detention Deputy with Shoplifting

The Broward Sheriff’s Office arrested one a detention deputy Tuesday afternoon for allegedly stealing from a Coral Springs Walmart.

The BSO’s Public Corruption Unit said it arrested Theodore Parrish, 51, and charged him with misdemeanor petit theft. BSO Detectives say on five days in November and December he stole merchandise worth more than $175.

BSO said that in each incident, Parrish allegedly went through the store’s self-checkout lane to pay for his items. Detectives said Parrish scanned and paid for some items while intentionally placing others in a Walmart bag without scanning them.

Walmart told BSO about the thefts on December 10 and Parrish turned himself in on Tuesday afternoon.
