DUBUQUE, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- Former Dubuque police officer, 31-year-old Kye Cross has been charged with 2nd-degree theft.

Cross was arrested at about 5:00 a.m. on October 9 related to thefts at his workplace.

The report says Cross and a coworker were pocketing money from the store while opening "fix it" tickets on the computer.

Cross’ current employer, Boost Mobile, claims he is responsible for taking $7,198.44 from the business this year.

Cross is currently on probation following his conviction on a sexual abuse charge last year.

In May of 2016, Cross reached an agreement to plead guilty to one count of 3rd-Degree Sexual Abuse.

Cross was accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl.

The girl had lied and claimed she was 19 at the time.

Cross was able to avoid jail time with a suspended ten-year prison sentence. He was also required to register as a sex offender and was placed on five years’ probation.

It’s not clear exactly what the details of Cross’ probation were, or what increased penalty he could face if his probation is revoked.
