    A Jacksonville officer was arrested after he stole a $100 bill that was seized as officers searched a narcotics warrant, officials said.

    Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Detective Jason Man, an 11-year veteran with the agency, has resigned after he was discovered with the stolen money.

    JSO Undersheriff Pat Ivey said Man is charged with tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony, and petit theft.

    Ivey said Man was serving a search warrant with several officers on Dignan Street at approximately 5 p.m. Thursday.

    During the search warrant, officers found narcotics and money.

    After photographing the money, officers noticed a $100 bill was missing.

    Two detectives had $100 bills in their pockets.

    Officers matched the serial number from the photograph to the $100 bill in Man's pocket.

    Man resigned after he was accused of the crime.
