FBI arrests Richmond County coroner

Special to SEGAZINE

Richmond County Coroner Grover Tuten was arrested Thursday in a joint state-federal investigation on a charge of stealing a car from a deceased man or his family.

District Attorney Ashley Wright said that an arrest warrant charges Tuten with the theft of a 2004 Nissan Altima about July 30. The vehicle belonged to a dead man or his heirs.

The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office has temporarily assumed authority of the coroner’s office and personnel employed in it, according to a department statement, which says it was called to assist the FBI and district attorney’s office in executing arrest warrants on “an elected government official.”
