A jailer in Cochise County was arrested Tuesday by the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Mario Serrano, 33, was charged with drug offenses. His arrest was the result of an ongoing DEA-Cochise County Sheriff's Office investigation, said Carol Capas, sheriff's spokeswoman. Because the DEA is heading the case, Capas could not comment on specifics of the case.

Serrano worked for the Sheriff's Office as a detention officer since 2001. Upon his arrest, he resigned.
