The investigation was turned over to the Sheriff’s Office due to a conflict of interest.

“One of the victims has a family member on the police department,” said Behrns.

According to Behrns, numerous people were interviewed and surveillance video led officers to Leyden. Leyden was arrested Monday after being asked to come to the Olmsted County Law Enforcement Center, Behrns said.
