District Attorney Warren Montgomery and St. Tammany Parish Sheriff Randy Smith announce the indictment and arrest Thursday (Oct. 26) of a former Sheriff’s Office narcotics investigator charged with malfeasance in office.
A St. Tammany Parish grand jury indicted Jordan Anthony Hollenbeck, 33, of Slidell, an investigator assigned to the narcotics unit, on three counts of malfeasance in office.
According to the indictment, Hollenbeck, while working in his capacity as a narcotics investigator, “established a relationship with an illegal prescription pill distributor in order to unlawfully receive narcotics for consumption” on or about Sept. 1, 2016. He also is accused of communicating information regarding one or more confidential informants to an illegal distributor of prescription pills for personal gain on at least two occasions—on or about April 10, 2017, and on or about July 13, 2017.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Collin Sims.
Hollenbeck’s employment with the Sheriff’s Office was terminated, and he was arrested.
