A Nye County Sheriff’s sergeant was ensnared in a drug sting and arrested over the weekend after a subordinate became suspicious of the superior officer’s insistence that he be the one to book a bottle of pills into evidence.

The subordinate alerted narcotics officers to the sergeant’s demands on Friday. The narcotics officers were able to inventory the pills before the subordinate handed them over to Sgt. Michael Horn to be booked into evidence.

Once the sergeant booked the pills, narcotics officers took them from the evidence room and recounted them. A total of 60 15 milligram morphine pills were missing. Sheriff Tony DeMeo was alerted to the situation at 11:35 p.m. Friday. By Saturday, police had search warrants for Horn’s person, his patrol car and his home.

When the search warrants were served, Horn happened to have just come back from a call to service at an elderly woman’s home; the sergeant allegedly coerced the woman to give him her pain medication.


This guy testified against people he busted and he's doing the same damn thing.
