BRANDON — A civilian employee of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office was arrested Monday after admitting to breaking into a home to steal prescription medication, deputies said.

Christopher Livernois, a 36-year-old property control specialist for the office’s warehouse supply section, told detectives he broke into the home of a woman he knows to steal the medication because he had recently developed a pill addication, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

The woman contacted the Sheriff’s Office on Monday and said she suspected Livernois had entered her home on Applegate Drive multiple times since September and stole oxycodone and morphine pills. The woman, whose name was not released, said she believes the most recent burglary happened Thursday.

Livernois told detectives he broke into the home on Thursday and took two pills, deputies said.

He was booked into the Hillsborough County jail on charges of burglary of an occupied dwelling and grand theft of a controlled substance and was released early Tuesday after posting $9,500 bail, records show.

Livernois has worked for the Sheriff’s Office since 2001.

“Under our employee policies and procedures, Mr. Livernois’ actions would result in a recommendation for termination, however, there is a disciplinary process that we must follow," Sheriff Chad Chronister said in a statement. "During that time, Mr. Livernois will be suspended without pay.”
