A 13-year veteran of the Broward Sheriff's Office was in uniform when he swiped action figures and DVDs from a Walmart without paying for them, officials said Monday.

Henry Guzman, 44, was arrested at the sheriff's office headquarters on West Broward Boulevard at 11 a.m. Monday and taken to the Broward Main Jail, said Veda Coleman-Wright, a spokeswoman for the agency.

Guzman is accused of shoplifting the merchandise, valued at nearly $200, on three separate occasions from a Walmart in Lauderdale Lakes, she said.

Guzman faces multiple misdemeanor theft charges and has been suspended with pay, the sheriff's office said.

"He is expected to be suspended without pay after the State Attorney's Office formally files the charges," Coleman-Wright said.

The agency's public corruptions unit began its investigation after getting notified by Walmart.

"Absolutely no one is above the law," Sheriff Scott Israel said in a prepared statement. "His actions are disgraceful, and in no way are a reflection of the good, hardworking men and women of the Broward Sheriff's Office.

"I commend the work of the Public Corruption Unit for its commitment to hold deputies accountable for any criminal activity."
