Stark County Sheriff Clarence Tuhy is under investigation for an alleged theft from a nonprofit agency, which he is calling a mistake.

In a seemingly unrelated matter, the Stark County Sheriff's Office will soon be investigated for its alleged hostile work environment, officials said Wednesday.

"Dickinson Police Department came to the Stark County state's attorney with information regarding a theft that appeared or suggests that the sheriff is involved," said Ken Zander, Stark County Commission chairman. "To my knowledge it involves no other personnel from the sheriff's department."

Tuhy said the alleged theft, which occurred at House of Manna, a nonprofit that accepts donations and distributes to those in need, is an "unfortunate" misunderstanding.

In addition, Stark County commissioners decided during an executive session last week to have an outside firm investigate the sheriff's office.
