ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — In early 2004 – more than 15 years before he was charged with embezzling $162,000 from Torrance County throughout his term as sheriff – Heath White was accused of stealing $700 from a man he pulled over for driving while intoxicated.
White was an officer with the Albuquerque Police Department at the time. He resigned from the department in July 2004, while under investigation, rather than be terminated.
These details surfaced in a motion filed by the Attorney General’s Office in 7th Judicial District Court asking the court to order APD to turn over White’s internal affairs file.
