RCSO Deputy is Arrested for Using County-Issued Fuel Card to Gas Up Personal Vehicle


How expensive is gas these days?

The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office arrested Deputy Tyler Wood on Thursday after it was discovered that he used his county-issued fuel card to purchase gas for a personal vehicle.

The incident occurred on June 21, 2022 at Circle K Convenience Store, 2631 Washington Road, when Deputy Wood made two separate transactions: one for his patrol car and the second for a personal vehicle.

Deputy Wood, 23, was charged with credit card fraud and violation of oath of office.

Deputy Wood began his employment with the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office in April 2021 and his termination is effective today. Deputy Wood was assigned to Road Patrol.
