For now, though, the situation remains a mystery. The department is keeping both the identity of the officers and the activity being probed under wraps.

"Due to the allegations and after thoroughly reviewing the available information, Chief Janee Harteau immediately requested an internal affairs investigation and placed both officers on administrative leave," Barrington explained in a release. "The law does not permit disclosure of the nature of the active internal affairs investigation."
