Montgomery County Texas deputies accused of stealing gas

Former Deputies William Anthony Guy, 54, and James Walter Manning III, 27, are each facing a Class B misdemeanor theft charge for allegedly stealing less than $100 worth of gasoline from the Constable’s Office, according to indictments handed down Tuesday. The theft charge would normally be a class C misdemeanor, punishable only by a fine, but prosecutors claim Guy and Manning stole the gasoline “by virtue of their position” as deputies, enhancing the charge. The two are no longer employed by the Precinct 1 Constable’s Office, according to Texas Commission on Law Enforcement spokesperson Gretchen Grigsby. Guy currently works at the Trinity County Sheriff’s Office while Manning is not employed by a law enforcement agency in Texas, Grigsby said. The deputies could have their peace officer licenses suspended for a minimum of 60 days if convicted.
