An indictment warrant has led to the arrest of a Peoria County Sheriff’s Deputy.
Following the warrant issued in Peoria County Court Tuesday, Adam King, 37, surrendered to authorities. He was booked in the Peoria County Jail on a charge of unlawful possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance. King was released after posting bond.
King is scheduled to make a court appearance June 6.
Peoria County Sheriff Brian Asbell says King, who has been an employee of the sheriff’s office two years, was placed on administrative leave Feb. 22. A police report was filed with the Peoria Police Department regarding allegations of suspected criminal off-duty conduct by King.
Asbell says King remains on administrative leave while an internal investigation is on-going separate from the criminal investigation. Asbell said he could not discuss the case further because of the active investigations.
