WEST BATON ROUGE PARISH - Two West Baton Rouge sheriff's deputies were arrested and more arrests are possible over an internal audit of the department's work release program.

According to the sheriff's office, the deputies were arrested after a probe of the work release program. The audit came in the wake of repeated escapes in recent years.

The sheriff's office says the arrests came after the investigation "uncovered some things" that should not have been happening. A sheriff's office spokesperson wouldn't say what charges the deputies were facing or identify those arrested but said more arrests are possible.
