VISTA (CNS) - A San Diego County sheriff's deputy was behind bars Thursday on suspicion of molesting three minors, authorities reported.

Officers with the Chula Vista Police Department arrested Jaylen Devon Fleer, 27, on Wednesday following a nearly four-month-long investigation, CVPD Lt. Dan Peak said.

Fleer, who is assigned to the sheriff's jail and court-services unit, was booked into Vista Detention Facility on suspicion of 15 felony charges, including lewd acts with a person 14 or 15 years old, luring a minor for purposes of committing a sex offense and oral copulation with a person under age 16.

The case came to light April 9, when San Diego County Crime Stoppers received tips regarding an unidentified man who allegedly engaged in sex acts with a juvenile, according to Peak.

``Investigators were able to identify the suspect and also determine that there were two additional underage victims,'' the lieutenant said, adding that the alleged offenses ``had no nexus to (Fleer's) employment.''

The Sheriff's Department did not immediately respond to a request for further information about the case.

Fleer was being held without bail pending arraignment, tentatively scheduled for July 31.
