Joshua Cauthen, 32, was terminated from his position with the department.
Joshua Cauthen, 32, was terminated from his position with the department in correlation with his arrest on Friday by the S.C. Law Enforcement Division (SLED). Agents charged Cauthen with breach of trust with criminal Intent of less than $2,000.
Deputies advised Cauthen worked for the sheriff’s office deputy since February 2021 in both the enforcement and special services division.
Though he served as a sheriff’s deputy in the time frame of the accusations, officials say the acts were committed through his role with the Great Falls Rescue Squad.
