jewelry

A Jacksonville medical investigator has been jailed on charges he stole jewelry from dead people. Christopher Allen was arrested early Friday morning and charged with official misconduct and dealing in stolen goods.

Allen is a forensic investigator in the District 4 medical examiner’s office in Jacksonville. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has been investigating him since May when the family of a deceased person complained of missing jewelry. FDLE spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger says Allen worked the overnight shift.
