HOMEWOOD, Ala. (WBRC) - Homewood police have terminated a corrections officer following an internal investigation based on a theft complaint.

A warrant for 31-year-old Tiffany Purifoy, of Tarrant City, was obtained for theft of property through the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office.

Police arrested a man on an outstanding warrant in late July. Investigators say when he bonded out he lodged a formal complaint that he was missing some money.

That investigation resulted in Purifoy’s arrest.

The amount of money missing is undetermined, but is enough to warrant a felony charge, which would be a minimum of $500.

Purifoy was booked into the Jefferson County Jail Wednesday morning.

Her bond was set at $2500.
