Two Kerrville cops tied to trooper probe leave force
By Zeke MacCormack - San Antonio Express-News

Two brothers are no longer Kerrville police officers after a probe concluded they allegedly obtained steroids from Department of Public Safety Trooper Jeff Jerman, who was arrested last week on a charge of delivery of a controlled substance.

Kerrville City Manager Todd Parton said Patrolman Danny Sanchez was fired Friday, and Larry Sanchez resigned as a school resource officer on Thursday.

No prosecution is expected of the pair, who Parton said were suspended this week pending an internal investigation.

He said that inquiry indicated the brothers violated agency policy by allegedly buying steroids from Jerman, who was arrested at the Kendall County Sheriff's Department Sept. 11 and is free on $15,000 bond.

Court records allege Jerman, 33, sold $800 in steroids to “a cooperating individual” on Sept. 7 at a store in Kerrvlle.

Parton couldn't say how long the city had employed the Sanchezes, who couldn't be reached for comment.

Texas Ranger Wayne Matthews said the city's actions concerning the Sanchezes was “outside the scope” of his investigation of Jerman, who lives in Boerne.
