A San Diego County Sheriff's Department deputy was arrested Friday for allegedly bringing an illegal drug onto jail property.
Allen Paul Wereski, 48, was taken into custody after a substance believed to be cocaine was found in his vehicle, according to a statement from the department.
Wereski has been suspended without pay pending resolution of the case.
Wereski was booked into San Diego Central Jail and was being held on $25,000 bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.
Further details were not immediately available.
"The investigation is still ongoing, so limited information is available at this time," the department statement asserted.
