Denver man arrested on charges of giving meth to former sheriff accused of trading it for sex
DENVER (AP) ' A Denver man has been arrested over allegations he supplied methamphetamine to former Arapahoe County Sheriff Patrick Sullivan Jr., which led to the Colorado lawman's arrest.
Authorities say 49-year-old Timothy Faase was arrested Tuesday after investigators tailed Sullivan to Faase's apartment.
According to KMGH-TV (http://bit.ly/v3jTAp ), Faase was being held on suspicion of drug trafficking and possession of more than 2 grams of methamphetamine. His bond was set at $25,000.
The 68-year-old former sheriff faces a distribution charge and was being held on a $500,000 bond. Sullivan was sheriff of the suburban Denver county from 1984 until 2002, when he retired.
Authorities say he offered methamphetamine in exchange for sex from a male acquaintance.
