Pasadena parole agent suspected of grand theft

PASADENA — Police arrested a parole agent from the Pasadena parole office Wednesday on suspicion of grand theft, authorities said.
R.E. Wilson, 52, was released later in the day after posting $20,000 bail, according to sheriff’s booking records.
Citing an ongoing police investigation, as well as a possible internal investigation by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, police declined to release details of what Wilson is suspected of stealing.
“He was arrested for grand theft,” Pasadena police Lt. Tracey Ibarra said. “I can’t comment more. The investigation is ongoing.”
According to state law, “grand theft” involved stealing money, labor or property valued at greater than $400.
After contacting the the Pasadena parole office where Wilson worked, police arrested the agent about 1 p.m., Ibarra said.
Information on Wilson’s initial court appearance was not available Wednesday.
