Former jail deputy arrested in Canyon County

A former detention deputy is charged with attempted strangulation in connection with an incident at his Caldwell home on Feb. 17.

A judge issued a felony arrest warrant for 28-year-old Matthew Pond on Friday. Pond turned himself in on the warrant Monday evening and was booked into the Canyon County Jail.

The arrest warrant stems from an incident at Pond’s Caldwell home. Pond reported the incident to his supervisor at the Ada County Jail on Feb. 18 and was immediately placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the criminal investigation.

The Caldwell Police Department is the investigating agency because the incident happened in their jurisdiction.

Pond’s employment with the Ada County Sheriff’s Office was terminated Monday. He had worked as a detention deputy since May 2015.
