Sheriff’s deputy accused of interfering in police investigation

Freeborn County Sheriff's Office

ALBERT LEA, Minn. – The investigation into a Freeborn County sheriff’s deputy revolves around an Albert Lea criminal case.  Deputy Dale Glazier has been placed on paid leave while the Rochester Police Department investigates the situation.  Captain John Sherwin says a citizen complaint was received that Glazier interjected himself into an investigation by Albert Lea police of an alleged assault involving juveniles.  Captain Sherwin says Glazier has some relationship with the juveniles in the case, but could not be more specific.  Freeborn County authorities requested Rochester police look into this matter and Sherwin says their inquiry is in the preliminary stages.  He says they are examining if any criminal laws were broken or any internal department policies were violated.  Glazier was placed on paid leave Friday, the same day he announced his candidacy for sheriff.
