MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office is conducting a criminal investigation into a high-ranking member of its Detention Services Bureau.

FOX6 News profiled Major Nancy Evans earlier this year.

Evans oversees the downtown County Jail, and the Correctional Facility South in Franklin.

Sources told FOX6 News Thursday night, June 7th that Evans is the target of an investigation centering around the authorization of payments for work that was never done at either jail.

Evans has been placed on administrative suspension while the Sheriff’s Office and the Milwaukee County District Attorney review the matter.

FOX6 News contacted Evans’ attorney who would only say he does not believe she has been involved in any criminal activity.
