Default "Sheriff Of The Year" Goes To Jail

This retired CO sheriff was once named "Sheriff Of The Year". He now resides in the jail that is named after him. Seems like the sheriff had a thing for guys and meth. How in hades does a guy like this cover his tracks for years?

Quote:
Sullivan came to the attention of law enforcement after an Oct. 4 call to authorities from a home in Centennial, according to an arrest affidavit. The deputy who responded had worked for Sullivan and knew who he was.

After investigating further, the deputy learned from two confidential informants that Sullivan was dealing meth but would sell it only if they had sex with him, the document stated. He was arrested after police set up a sting at a home.

Deputies found that Sullivan had handed someone a bag of methamphetamine and had another bag on him when he was searched, according to the affidavit. Both bags together weighed less than a gram.

It's a sad situation, but unfortunately, not surprising. The good news is the deputies had the courage to do the right thing. Now that is refreshing and should be commended.

Here's a case regarding a local sheriff and gunsm, which have ramifications that go beyond those of drugs. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I can already hear the LEOs saying the Tidwell case is unique. Well, what's scary is that many of the guns were reportedly handed over to LEOs and last I heard, only one or two guns were turned back in during the grace period.

"The hundreds of guns that former San Bernardino County Sheriff Floyd Tidwell allegedly took from evidence rooms and then handed out to family and friends are a "huge public safety concern" because authorities have no way of knowing who has the unregistered firearms, a prosecutor said Tuesday.

Tidwell, who allegedly took at least 523 guns while he served as sheriff from 1983 to 1991, pleaded guilty Monday to four felony counts of concealing stolen property."
