(AP) - An El Dorado County sheriff's deputy has been arrested on suspicion of drug-related offenses in Nevada.

The Sacramento Bee reports Deputy Mark Zlendick, who is assigned to the South Lake Tahoe Narcotics Enforcement Team was arrested Tuesday after deputies responded to a call involving a domestic dispute in Minden.

An investigation by Douglas County deputies located narcotics and paraphernalia, which lead to Zlendick's arrest. Sgt. Pat Brooks of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office says the woman had not been arrested.

Zlendick was booked into the Douglas County jail on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance, trafficking methamphetamine, conspiracy and possession of paraphernalia.

Zlendick posted bail and has been released. According to the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office, he has been placed on paid administrative leave.
