ROSEVILLE, Calif. (KCRA) —A battalion chief with Cal Fire was arrested in a drug detail operation in Roseville, KCRA 3 confirmed Tuesday.
Battalion Chief Wright was arrested in the 200 block of Harding Boulevard on Sept. 30 on suspicion of the sale or transport of drugs, according to the Roseville Police Department.
"He was one of three different people arrested," said DeeDee Gunther, a Roseville police spokeswoman
Wright is now on "accumulated leave," said Daniel Berlant, a spokesman with Cal Fire.
"That means he is using his own personal time. A decision has not yet been made on his status because he is using his accumulated leave," Berlant said.
Berlant said Wright was not on duty at the time of the arrest.
The district attorney's office has not yet reviewed the case, nor has it filed formal criminal charges, according to Gunther.
Berlant said Wright, who has been with Cal Fire since 2006, is scheduled to return to work in mid-November.
