December 18, 2017 -- A Washington County Sheriff's Office employee was arrested for alleged possession of a schedule III controlled substance. He was booked at the Washington County Jail.
In early December, the Washington County Sheriff's Office received information of alleged unlawful possession of anabolic steroids by an employee, Bryce Kampwerth. The Sheriff's Office requested the Beaverton Police Department investigate and Mr. Kampwerth was placed on administrative leave.
During the investigation, Beaverton Police investigators developed probable cause to believe Mr. Kampwerth had been in possession of the steroids in May of 2017. Last Friday, a Washington County grand jury indicted Mr. Kampwerth for one count of possession of a schedule III controlled substance.
This afternoon, Mr. Kampwerth, 33-years-old of Sherwood, was booked at the Washington County Jail on an arrest warrant stemming from Friday's grand jury indictment.
Mr. Kampwerth has been employed with the Sheriff's Office since January of 2014 and is a deputy assigned to the Patrol Division.
The Sheriff's Office is releasing this information in the interest of public transparency and will be conducting an internal investigation. Allegations of misconduct are taken seriously and thoroughly investigated.
