Lowndes County - A Lowndes County deputy has been fired after he found himself on the wrong side of the law.

39 year-old Michael Shane Hare is charged with theft of lost property.

Investigators with the Lowndes County Sheriffs office said he turned in a lost book bag earlier this month.

It belonged to a student at Lowndes High. When he came to claim his bag, his laptop was missing.

A security program allowed him to assist deputies in tracking down the computer.  It was recovered in Hare's home.

Investigators say he was immediately terminated.  They are disappointed in his actions and say all employees of the Sheriff's Office are held to a higher standard.

He's been a patrol officer with the sheriff's department since 2005.
