Stanislaus Sheriff Captain Put on Leave Pending FBI Investigation

A Stanislaus County Sheriff's captain is on administrative leave pending a federal investigation.

Authorities said Thursday that Captain Raul DeLeon is part of an
ongoing FBI investigation, although they declined to provide details.

Sheriff Adam Christianson says discussing the details could compromise the investigation. FBI agent Karen Ernst also declined
to comment.

It was unclear whether DeLeon is being interviewed as a witness
or as a suspect.

Authorities also would not say whether DeLeon has been arrested.

DeLeon, 50, is commander of the operations division at the sheriff's department where he oversees the patrol and investigation units.
