STAR — Ada County sheriff's deputies arrested former Bakersfield Deputy Derrick Penney in Idaho after a Kern County Grand Jury handed down more than a dozen felony indictments in connection with a 2016 law enforcement corruption scandal in Bakersfield.
According to NBC affiliate KGET in Bakersfield, Penney was listed in that indictment.
Last year, a judge sentenced Penney to three years probation and 250 hours of community service, after he and his partner, along with two Bakersfield police officers, pleaded guilty to stealing and selling drugs.
On at least one occasion, Penney and his partner Logan August used their keys to raid a narcotics evidence locker, before selling it, according to court documents.
Wednesday's indictments are sealed, so the exact charges are unknown.
As of Friday night, Penney was awaiting extradition back to California.
