(BEDFORD) - The Bedford Board of Works approved and accepted the resignation of Bedford Officer Edward Allen on Monday afternoon.

According to Indiana State Police, 42-year-old Allen was arrested after he was captured on video taking $20 from a man's wallet while he was processing him following an arrest at the Bedford Police Department.

Allen was arrested on a warrant for theft and official misconduct. He posted $755 cash bond and was released the same day.

An initial hearing is scheduled for today at 10:30 a.m. in Lawrence County Superior Court I.

According to a Lawrence County Superior Court I probable cause affidavit, Indiana State Police Lt. Greg Ashby was assigned to investigate the possible crime. On Dec. 28th, Allen's body camera captured images of him taking a $20 bill from the wallet of a man he was processing for arrest at the Bedford Police Station and placing that bill in his personal wallet.

The Bedford Board of Works placed Allen on unpaid administrative leave on September 9th, pending the outcome of the criminal investigation.
