DIMMITT, TX (KFDA) -

A now former Dimmitt police officer is accused of removing a government document from the Castro County Sheriff's Office back in May.

Rita Ramo Sepeda was arrested on August 8 for a warrant for theft by a public servant.

The Castro County Sheriff's Office says her arrest stems from allegedly removing a government document from the Castro County Sheriff's Office on May 18.

She was placed on administrative leave while the Dimmitt Police Department conducted an internal investigation.

The Castro County Sheriff's Office turned the investigation over to the Texas Rangers who have since presented a case to the Castro County District Attorney's Office.
