Glen Nelson was indicted in January after being arrested for trading pills, according to Sheriff Robbie K. Goins. Nelson was fired in June 2015.

Investigators say Nelson traded the pills while on duty and had inappropriate acts with a female.

“I have made it clear from day one that we will fight the illegal drug system, the pill mills and careless and reckless prescription dispensing where ever it takes us and to whom ever we need to investigate, arrest and prosecute,” said Goins. “The Campbell County citizens and I have more resolve and patience than these alleged drug dealers that make the choice to help ruin the very fibers that our county and communities are built strong on.”

Goins said the indictment was obtained after tips from concerned citizens, intelligence and the District Attorney’s 8th Judicial Drug and Violent Crime Task Force.
