In early August, the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office said they received a complaint of a reported sexual assault that happened in Hardin County, Texas, involving 28-year-old Jordan River Quillen and a 24-year-old woman.

As the investigation continued, police determined that Quillen was employed by Lumberton EMS as a paramedic.

Quillen has been accused of tampering with official documents involving the destruction of unused or expired medication and sedatives from certain ambulances operated by Lumberton EMS, according to authorities.

He is also facing allegations of theft of EMS property without consent, officials said.

After searching Quillen’s home, officers found EMS property, as well as drugs and narcotics inside the home.

As of now, Quillen has been charged with sexual assault, tampering with government documents and theft by a public servant, police said.

However, certain items from his home will be submitted for analysis to a state police laboratory and more charges are expected to be filed in this case as the investigation continues.

Quillen was in police custody, but he was released after posting $70,000 bail, authorities said.
