Law officers among dozens arrested in drug sting

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ Norman police say an officer arrested in a drug investigation is now on leave with pay pending an administrative investigation.

Officer Kyle Sherman is one of dozens of people arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to traffic a controlled dangerous substance.

Police spokesman Jennifer Newell says the drug investigation also led to allegations of criminal misconduct against three other Norman officers.

Their names were not released, but Newell says they are also on leave pending an investigation.

Among the others arrested in the drug investigation is Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Timothy Timmons. The OHP says Timmons is suspended with pay pending an investigation by that agency.

The arrests are part of a months-long investigation headed by the Drug Enforcement Agency. An official with the US Marshals Service says the investigation involved two Oklahoma City-area gyms.
