Three West Baton Rouge deputies are under arrest and another is wanted after an internal investigation found corruption within the department.
Officials announced yesterday that James McClurg, Dimple Jones, and Taija Pearly were arrested this past week, and Michael Lafayette had failed to turn himself in to authorities. Lafayette later surrendered to authorities.
All four are charged with malfeasance in office, while Jones and Pearly are also facing charges for prohibited sexual misconduct with a prisoner.
All of them have been terminated from the sheriff's office.
