One deputy stuffed a shaving kit with hundred-dollar bills as an "emergency fund" in his bedroom closet. Another deputy stashed tens of thousands of dollars in a cookie tin and a locked box in his home. A third deputy kept thousands in an attic safe over his stepson's bedroom. The money, deputies said, came from refurbishing cars, baby-sitting, garage sales, savings and collecting loose change. Or from gambling winnings, spousal incomes, outside businesses and gifts from relatives.
