The heat continues as does daily crime in North Texas.

A recently fired North Texas deputy has been accused of slipping confiscated guns out of a property room and pawning the weapons.

The Grayson County Sheriff's Office says Errin William Luton of Southmayd was indicted Wednesday on a charge of theft over $20,000 by a public servant.

Luton, who was fired last week and arrested Wednesday, is free on $10,000 bond. A message left for an attorney for Luton was not immediately returned Thursday to The Associated Press.

Sheriff Keith Gary says Texas Rangers are helping with the investigation of thefts allegedly going back to June.
