Former Tift County Deputy Ollin “Rocky” Carter was arrested for the offenses of Violation of Oath of Office, Burglary in the 2nd Degree, and Theft by Taking. 

On Sept.16, 2019, Tift County Sheriff Gene Scarboro asked the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to investigate a complaint he received from a Tift County citizen alleging theft by a Tift County Deputy from Brooks Body Shop.

After conducting interviews with the complainant and witnesses, Carter was arrested and booked into the Tift County Jail.  Prior to his arrest, Carter resigned from the Tift County Sheriff’s Office.

The GBI will continue its independent investigation. Once complete, it will be turned over to the Tift Judicial District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
