Former Child Welfare Worker Solicited Sexual Favors

NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A former Florida child welfare investigator has been arrested in Pennsylvania for offering a woman a clean drug report in exchange for sex.

A Volusia County Sheriff’s Office report says 31-year-old Andrew Thomas was arrested at his home in Carlisle, Pa. on Friday on a warrant. He’s charged with bribery by a public servant, official misconduct and falsifying records.

Thomas was a Florida Department of Children and Families investigator when he offered the woman his own urine for her drug test on May 8. Thomas resigned soon after and moved to Pennsylvania.

Authorities say he confirmed to investigators what the victim told deputies. Thomas was booked into the Cumberland County Prison in Pennsylvania where he’s awaiting extradition to Volusia County.

Authorities believe there may have been other victims in Florida.
