BAKERSFIELD, California — A former Kern County, California sheriff's deputy living in Idaho has been arrested and faces multiple charges , including conspiracy, burglary and selling marijuana.
Derrick Penney, 36, had been living in Star, Idaho after being sentenced last year to three years of probation for his role in a 2014 drug ring involving multiple Bakersfield officers. He and his partner, Logan August, pleaded guilty to stealing and selling drugs after using their keys to raid a narcotics evidence locker.
August faces 15 felony counts.
Penney was arrested last week in Idaho and extradited back to California.
Both are scheduled for arraignments today in Kern County.
