ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. — A probation officer in Adams County was arrested in Nebraska over the weekend, officials said Friday.

Shauna Sanders, 45, was arrested on suspicion of possession with the intent to deliver cocaine and crack cocaine, among other charges.

According to a criminal complaint filed this week in Keith County, investigators think Sanders also had Ecstasy as well.

Saunders was placed on leave this week. She has about two-and-a-half weeks of vacation time, which she is entitled to use and then she will be placed on leave without pay, a spokesperson said.

Sanders was hired by the Adams County Probation Office in 1998 and became a probation supervisor in 2011.
