A lieutenant in the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office is under investigation for domestic abuse, a top official in the department said Friday.

Chief Deputy Naldo Gagnon declined to identify the officer, saying that the investigation is ongoing and no charges have been filed.

Gagnon also said he didn’t know if the lieutenant has been reassigned or put on administrative leave while the investigation is conducted.

The investigation is expected to be completed Monday, Gagnon said.
