Jailer arrested for stealing from inmates, workers

ST. ANTHONY – A former Fremont County Jail guard in eastern Idaho pleaded guilty to one count of grand theft after he was arrested for stealing from inmates and co-workers.

Bradley Holjeson, 24, had been accused of stealing a financial transaction card from an inmate, prescription drugs from a 911 dispatcher and bond money for inmates.

Prosecutors this week agreed to forgo one count of grand theft and drug charges, in exchange for Holjeson’s guilty plea.

Police in St. Anthony believe Holjeson stole $600 from the jail’s bond fund, then wrote receipts on the commissary’s receipt book to make the thefts look like withdrawals.

He was caught when an inmate produced receipts for deposits made to the bond fund in his own name, the Idaho Falls Post Register reported.
