Two Central Texas officials have been arrested for allegedly falsifying training records.

Freestone County Captain Travis Robertson was arrested at11:06 a.m. at his house on Wednesday by agents with the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Education, or TCLEOSE. He was immediately transported to the Travis County Jail, says Lieutenant Robert Willis of Freestone County Sheriff's Office. Robertson faces a three count felony indictment from Travis County.

Freestone County Sheriff Thomas Anderson turned himself into authorities at 7:49 a.m. Thursday, after he was given 48 hours to turn himself in. Anderson faces a 20 count indictment.

The charges stem from an investigation into training records by TCLEOSE that go as far back as 2011.

Both men have now posted bond.

"This is hitting pretty close to everybody. He's our friend. We've known him for a very long time," said Willis about Anderson's arrest.
