Arizona CPS worker accused of heroin purchase
A state Child Protective Services worker was arrested Thursday evening on suspicion of buying drugs from undercover detectives, Phoenix police said.
Leyla Sadikovic, 35, bought $200 worth of heroin while driving in a government-issued vehicle, Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Trent Crump said.
Sadikovic reportedly told investigators she did the drug buy as a part of her job with CPS to investigate her clients.
The Phoenix Police Department’s Drug Enforcement Bureau had received a tip earlier that day that Sadikovic was soliciting a client to obtain narcotic drugs.
Police said Sadikovic made many attempts throughout Thursday to get a hold of drugs.
Sadikovic was booked into jail on a count of attempted possession of a narcotic drug, Crump said.
The internal affairs division of Child Protective Services is working with Phoenix Police in the investigation.
