REDWOOD VALLEY, Calif.—An official in the Mendocino County District Attorney's budget and finance officer is on leave after a marijuana bust at her home.
Sherylin Young agreed to let sheriff's officials search her home Thursday, when they found 39 pounds of dried pot. Young, who has not been arrested or booked on any charges, was appointed administrative executive officer in November 2005, after nearly 20 years in pediatric nursing.
District Attorney Meredith Lintott said officials are investigating the bust, but she emphasized that the county maintained a "zero tolerance" policy toward lawbreaking employees.
