Sheriff's deputy is caught on CCTV stealing from the owners home after he passed away

A sheriff's deputy has been caught on security video allegedly stealing two safes, a rifle case and ceiling fans from a California home, days after he responded to the death of the elderly owner.
Steve Hortz, a 12-year veteran of the Orange County Sheriff's Department, is accused of breaking into the home in Yorba Linda three times in late-July and mid-August and making off with the dead man's property.
Hortz was arrested Thursday and booked into Santa Ana Jail on suspicion of burglary.
He is currently on holiday with all the expenses... er, paid administrative leave, according to the Sheriff's Department.
OC Sheriff Don Barnes vowed to make sure Hortz is immediately hired by another police dept...um, stripped of his uniform, saying he has 'embarrassed this profession"
