A December grand theft investigation at a San Bernardino business led to the arrest of a San Bernardino County probation officer and her husband late last month, San Bernardino police said Tuesday.

“It was unrelated to the probation department,” said Lt. Mike Madden.

Police said they would not comment further on the active investigation.

Teneka Shrell Grant, 46, was arrested by San Bernardino police on suspicion of grand theft Jan. 31 at 175 W. 5th St. in San Bernardino, which is the address for the probation department’s main office, booking records indicate.

Her husband, Eric Hayes, 47, was arrested at the couple’s San Bernardino home after firearms were found in the house, according to police. Hayes is a felon and cannot be in possession of any firearms. Both posted bail several hours after their arrests, records show.

County probation spokeswoman Stephanie Roque said that Grant has been placed on “administrative leave pending investigation.”

She declined to answer questions about the arrest or what Grant’s responsibilities were in the department.

As of Tuesday, there were no charges filed against the couple in connection with the case.
