Jasper County Sheriff Mitchel Newman said Wednesday that one of his officers had been placed on paid administrative leave pending the completion of an internal investigation into his actions.

Newman said his lead investigator Captain Bob Walker would remain off duty pending the completion of an investigation that was being conducted by the Texas Rangers.

Newman said that he could not make further comments concerning the case, but said the investigation began following allegations of misconduct.

Reliable sources have said that the investigation involves a firearm that was reported to have been stolen but allegedly later recovered.
