A Montgomery police officer was arrested Tuesday and charged with two counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance.
Amanda Millwood, 38, who has served as a Montgomery police officer for nine years, was placed on mandatory leave, Montgomery police Capt. Regina Duckett said. Disciplinary action against the officer was initiated.
Two other suspects were charged as a part of the investigation, police said.
Constance Millwood, 34, is charged with two counts each of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance. Beverlee Gardner, 36, was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance.
MPD initiated a criminal investigation after receiving information about a Montgomery police officer’s alleged involvement controlled and illegal drugs.
“The off-duty conduct of police officers must reflect their on-duty responsibilities,” Montgomery police Chief Ernest Finley said in a statement. “We will not tolerate illegal activity on the part of our officers, and last night’s arrest makes that clear.”
Amanda and Constance Millwood were transported to Montgomery County Detention Facility and are being held on $10,000 bond. Gardner is being held on a $1,500 bond.
No other details of the investigation were released.
