KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

Two members of law enforcement have been arrested for child endangerment and distribution of a firearm to a felon.

Andrew Charles O'Neal and Colleen Radford have now both been released from jail after each posting $10,000 bail.

According to an online Kansas database, Radford was a patrol officer with Kansas City, Kansas and O’Neal worked as a deputy in Wyandotte County.

Lt. Kelli Bailiff with the Wyandotte County Sheriff’s Office said, “We cannot verify any names as there is a pending internal investigation. A deputy has been charged, but as with everyone else, he is innocent until proven guilty.” She said the deputy was hired in 2008 and that he has been placed on administrative leave without pay pending the investigation.

The Bonner Springs Police Department had asked for help with a criminal investigation in their city. The Kansas City, Kansas Police Department ended up filing criminal charges against Radford, who they confirm is with KCKPD. 

She has been placed on unpaid leave pending the outcome of the criminal case. The incident is still being investigated by KCKPD's Criminal Investigations Divison. 

The exact details into what's alleged to have happened haven't been released.  

In Deputy O'Neal's KCK neighborhood, neighbors are stunned at the charges.

"I've only talked to him once, or twice,” said neighbor Tina Pimental. “He brought little sticker badges over for the kids.  He's never, never been a bad guy to me -- always to himself. So, does this surprise you, that, you know? Oh yeah."
