SLED investigating 'questionable actions' by GCSO deputy
Brian King
Staff Writer

Greenwood County Sheriff Tony Davis has called in State Law Enforcement Division to investigate what he calls “questionable actions” by a deputy.
 
John Long, officer in charge of professional standards for GCSO, said an unidentified deputy on Tuesday was placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
 
Long would not name the deputy placed on leave, but numerous sources at GCSO have identified the deputy as Drug Enforcement Unit commander Lt. Brandon Strickland.
 
Sources have alleged that the “questionable actions” involve missing funds of an unknown amount among a host of other allegations.
 
Davis said he felt the proper course of action was to ask SLED to perform an independent investigation.
 
“Our goal is to do everything above board and keep the trust of the citizens we serve,” Davis said in a prepared statement. “While I’ve been Sheriff, my protocol has been to call SLED anytime allegations surface about one of my employees.”
 
Davis called in SLED investigators after allegations surfaced about former administrator Sandi McAllister Owens surfaced in early 2013. Owens was later terminated after an independent investigation and financial audit led to a charge of embezzlement greater than $10,000. Owens pleaded not guilty to the charge in May 2014. That case is still pending.
 
Long said there is no timetable for the completion of the investigation.
