Former Arapahoe County Sheriff Pat Sullivan was taken into custody on Tuesday, accused of trying to exchange methamphetamine for a sexual encounter with an adult man.
The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office says the investigation into Sullivan, 68, began on Nov. 17 after deputies got tips that Sullivan was involved in distributing and using meth.
After the South Metro Drug Task Force and sheriff's investigators say they saw Sullivan give meth to the man around 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Sullivan was taken into custody without incident.
He is being held on a $250,000 bond at the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office Detention Facility pending the filing of criminal charges. The Patrick J. Sullivan Jr. Detention Facility is named after Sullivan.
Sullivan is being held in isolation, according to Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson.
This never gets old!! The former Sheriff also served as co-chair of Citizens Against the Legalization of Marijuana in Colorado which kept the legalization of medical marijuana of the ballot in 1998.
