SUNRIVER, Ore. (AP) - The Oregon attorney general is leading an investigation into the Sunriver police chief, who was placed on paid leave for undisclosed reasons.

The Bulletin reports Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel announced the involvement of Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum Thursday.

Hummel says Rosenblum is heading the fact-gathering phase of the investigation and that once her work is complete, she’ll provide it to Hummel for consideration of criminal charges.

The Sunriver Service District Managing Board placed Police Chief Marc Mills on leave Sunday. The board has not disclosed what led to the decision.

Bend Police Chief Jim Porter assigned Capt. Cory Darling to fill in as the interim Sunriver chief.

Porter said he was told the investigation is focused on Mills’ work in Sunriver, and not on his time in the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.
