A meth sting in Roseville netted an off duty Cal Fire battalion chief, but he still hasn't faced official charges yet.
Dee Dee Gunther with the Roseville Police Department says officers frequently operate stings to discourage drug activity in the city.
She says that on the night of September 30th, Ronald Wright was in the wrong place at the wrong time,
"It wasn't targeting him at all, it was just, that was what they were doing that night, and he happened to get into it."
Wright promptly went on a leave of absence. He's expected to return to work next month, which is when he'll be arraigned.
The Placer County DA says they plan to charge Wright closer to his arraignment date.
Regarding his job with Cal Fire, spokesman Daniel Berlant says it all depends on what happens in court,
"We take these allegations seriously, but the judicial system does need to work it's way through the process."
