ORO VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a Pima County Sheriff's deputy has been arrested on shoplifting and fraud charges.

The Oro Valley Police Department says 35-year-old Ryan Fuller turned himself in Monday.

Fuller allegedly shoplifted at a Walmart in Oro Valley.

He was arrested on suspicion of one count of organized retail theft and four counts of fraudulent schemes.

Oro Valley police told the Arizona Daily Star that Fuller allegedly was switching barcodes on some store items.

Sheriff's officials say Fuller has been placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation.

They say he's been with the department for more than three years.

It was unclear Tuesday if Fuller has a lawyer yet.
