POLSON — A detention officer at the Polson jail has been arrested following an internal affairs investigation.

Lake County Sheriff Don Bell says that Korren Fehrenbach, 25, of Polson -- a Lake County detention officer -- was taken into custody on Tuesday.

Fehrenbach was charged with one count of official misconduct, two counts of transferring of illegal articles into a detention facility and a count of unauthorized communication with an inmate, according to Sheriff Bell.

Fehrenbach is no longer employed by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Bell said in a news release that because of “the confidential personnel related matters in this case, no further details will be released by the Sheriff’s Office into the matter.”
