Rancho Cordova Police Officer Arrested on Drug Charges

On Wednesday morning a 23-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Department was arrested and booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on narcotics charges.

Kelly Smith, 43, was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, obtaining a controlled substance by fraud or deceit, and unlawful use of personal identifying information of another. Smith was later released from custody after posting bail.

On March 31, 2012, investigators within the Sheriff’s Department learned of alleged misconduct by Smith. An investigation was immediately initiated, and Smith was placed on administrative leave.

Further investigation by the Sheriff’s Department’s Professional Standards Division resulted in the charges that Smith was arrested for today. Smith is assigned to the Rancho Corodva Police Department who contacts with the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department.

“Maintaining the public trust is paramount to the Sheriff’s Department. Any alleged violation of that trust is something that the Sheriff’s Department will aggressively investigate and take appropriate action,” Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones said.

Both the administrative and criminal investigations into these allegations are ongoing and, as such, no further information can be given at this time. More information regarding these investigations will be released if and when it becomes available.
