3 King County sheriff’s deputies put on administrative leave

Three King County sheriff’s deputies were placed on paid administrative leave Tuesday pending an investigation, King County Sheriff John Urquhart said today in a department-wide email.

Urquhart did not say what the investigation was about.

Two of the officers are assigned to the Ravensdale Range and the third is assigned to Major Crimes. Urquhart did not provide the deputies’ names.

Urquhart wrote in the email that he sent a message because “there will undoubtedly be rumors and ‘talk’ going around, so this email is an effort to quell as much of that as I can.”
