• Breitbart

Ringfield, who was on probation for a previous felony, was booked into jail on charges of "theft and criminal damage," according to the outlet.

The Maricopa County Elections Department said in a statement to ABC15 that election workers who had been conducting "daily inventory" on Friday morning, realized that "an item" was missing "from the Ballot Tabulation Center and had been taken the night before."

"On Friday morning, when completing a daily inventory, Maricopa County election workers identified that an item was taken from the Ballot Tabulation Center on Thursday evening," the Maricopa County Election Department said. "Staff took immediate action to investigate the matter and contacted the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office. The stolen item has been recovered but to ensure the integrity of the Maricopa County Elections, election workers are reprogramming and reconducting logic and accuracy testing of all equipment."
