Broward sheriff's officials arrested Deputy Henry Guzman on Monday. The 13-year veteran is expected to be suspended without pay after the state attorney's office formally files the charges.

Authorities investigated after receiving a tip. They say Guzman stole from the store on three separate dates while wearing his uniform. He allegedly stole DVDs and action figures worth $200.

Sheriff Scott Israel condemned Guzman's actions as disgraceful in a statement.

It's unclear if Guzman had retained an attorney who could comment on the charges.
