SEATTLE (AP) -- The Snohomish County sheriff's office says a veteran Seattle police officer has been arrested in a child molestation case.
KOMO-TV reports (http://is.gd/CwhtDI) the officer was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on Monday for investigation of child molestation and communicating with a minor for immoral purposes.
