OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – An Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) investigation resulted in the indictment of Ottawa County Sheriff Jeremy Floyd (43). In June of this year, the Ottawa County District Attorney’s Office requested investigative assistance from the OSBI regarding allegations of embezzlement at the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office.

A thorough investigation was conducted, and in October a prosecutorial report was delivered to the Ottawa County District Attorney and the Oklahoma Attorney General.

Friday, the Multicounty Grand Jury returned indictments against Floyd for Embezzlement and Perjury. The Miami, Okla., Police Department arrested Floyd today and transported him to the Ottawa County Jail. His bond was set at $50,000.
