Deputy co-owns sex toys business

A Spokane County sheriff's deputy under investigation for fatally shooting a Spokane Valley pastor is now the subject of an investigation involving his ownership of a sex toys business.

Officials say deputy Brian Hirzel failed to disclose that he and his wife co-own Vanessa Allure, a business that sells sex toys online. Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich said Hirzel could face disciplinary measures if investigators determine he’s taken an active role in the company’s operations.

Hirzel is involved in the fatal shooting last month of pastor Wayne Scott Creach.
