A Galveston County sheriff's deputy is accused of hiding his truck and motorcycle to avoid the repo man.

Joseph Dowlearn, 37, is charged with hindering a secured creditor.

Prosecutors allege Dowlearn defaulted on two car loans with the Galveston government Employees Credit Union and hid the vehicles to prevent them from being repossessed.

Dowlearn was freed on bond Thursday. He's been on a leave of absence with the county since September.
