COLUMBIA, S.C. - Attorney General Alan Wilson says a former Greenwood County sheriff's deputy has been indicted on a charge of taking more than $10,000 from the sheriff's department.
Fifty-three-year-old Sandra McAllister Owens of Ware Shoals has been charged with embezzlement of more than $10,000. It was not clear if she has an attorney.
