A South Carolina sheriff says he's “sick to his stomach” after one of his own deputies was busted -- by his department -- in an undercover child sex sting operation. 

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott announced Tuesday that Derek Vandenham, 34, was “working on-duty, in my car, in my uniform” last week when he was taken into custody as part of Operation Relentless Guardian. Vandenham “was communicating to have sex with a 15-year-old,” Lott said, and he then showed up at a property where officers were waiting to arrest him. He has since been fired.

“That was something that made me sick to my stomach to know that one of my deputies that I trusted and that we put out here in this community was one of these monsters,” Lott added.
