A San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputy has been arrested after allegedly engaging in sexual activity with a jailed inmate, authorities said.

Deputy Johnathan Miller, 27, was booked into West Valley Detention Center Wednesday, according to a department report. He was released Thursday after posting a $25,000 bond and is on paid administrative leave.

Investigators received an allegation of improper sexual conduct between him and a 25-year-old female inmate at Glen Helen Rehabilitation Center, a department-run lockup for inmates serving time for misdemeanors, according to the report.

Detectives interviewed Miller and searched his home, then placed him under arrest.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to call the department’s Specialized Investigations Division at (909) 387-3589.
