An alleged sex scandal led a veteran Washington County sheriff's deputy to resign last week and caused two Marietta police officers and a city firefighter to be placed on paid leave over the weekend, according to Sheriff Larry Mincks.

Few details about the nature of the allegations are being released as internal affairs officers continue to investigate.

Sheriff Larry Mincks said Sgt. Robert Eddy, who started at the sheriff's office in May 1994, resigned effective June 3 after he was questioned about possible "inappropriate behavior involving a woman."

Two Officers Arrested in Conne

Westminster Police Officer Anthony Nicholas Orban swore to protect his community and defend the rights of citizens, but he allegedly failed to uphold that oath. He is accused of abducting a 24-year-old woman from a mall parking lot in Ontario, Calif., forcing her to drive to a commercial complex in Fontana, and raping her at gunpoint.

And police say the 30-year-old Westminster police officer wasn't the only one involved in the attack. His alleged getaway driver was Corrections Officer Jeff Thomas Jelinek, who police say aided the attack by standing by as Orban raped the woman, and then by driving Orban away from the crime scene. Orban, say police, accidentally left his gun behind after the assault.

When the two men arrived back at the mall parking lot, Orban called his wife and told her he had lost his gun, police said. She called Ontario police to report the missing weapon, and officers went to find him.

The rape victim reported the attack to Fontana police, outside of Anaheim. Investigators found the gun and told Ontario officers, who arrested Orban and Jelinek after they gave inconsistent statements, said police.

Orban was booked for investigation of kidnapping, false imprisonment, rape and carjacking. Jelinek was booked for investigation of carjacking and as an accessory to the crime. Bail for each was set at $1 million.

Officials said it did not appear either man identified himself as a police officer.

Ontario police are trying to determine if there are other victims.
