Hennepin County Deputy among 2 arrested in drug probe

MINNEAPOLIS — A nurse and her husband, a sheriff’s deputy, have been arrested as part of a probe of the theft of narcotics from the Hennepin County Jail.

The sheriff’s office says the investigation started when a nurse at the Hennepin County Medical Center tipped them that a co-worker was stealing drugs from the jail.

Investigators found enough evidence to make an arrest. She’s being held in the Hennepin County Jail.

A search of her house in Burnsville led to the arrest of her husband, a Hennepin County sheriff’s deputy. He’s being held in the Dakota County Jail.

Prosecutors have not filed formal charges against either of them. The sheriff’s office says in a Wednesday news release that its investigation is continuing.
