ROSEBUD -- The city of Rosebud is under tough scrutiny tonight. First, the former Police Chief is charged with tampering with evidence. Then, drugs are found in city vehicles.

Hours after the former Rosebud Police Chief, Jermiah Shultz, is convicted of tampering with evidence another city employ is arrested.

Louis Adamez was pulled over in Lott where police found pot and what they believe to be meth or cocaine in his city truck.

"From that point forward, we had to do the things we needed to do as a city to make sure everything was okay. In doing so, we found a lot of things that we not okay," said City Manager, Eric Kuykendall.

After Adamez's arrest, Kuykendall ordered a search of all city vehicles.

They were shocked to find more drugs, and drug tests were ordered for all employees.

"These folks deal with water and wastewater, and these issues, especially when you're dealing with water, if somebody is not 100 percent, you know, accidents could happen. That puts the public at risk," said Kuykendall.

Kuykendall is working with the city council to figure out what to do after he receives the drug test results.

He says he can overhaul the department and contract the work out, send some employees to rehab or hire all new staff.

The drug test results are expected to be in Tuesday. After that, the city will move forward with their decision.
