BEND, Ore. (AP) - The Bend regional manager of the Pendleton Oregon Liquor Control Commission office is on paid administrative leave pending an investigation.

OLCC spokeswoman Christie Scott said that the investigation against Katie Siefkes is confidential, and the commission can not disclose the nature of any allegations.

Siefkes has served as regional manager in Bend since 2012. She oversees staff in the commission's Bend and Pendleton offices, which perform liquor licensing, regulation and enforcement in Central and Eastern Oregon.

Scott says, Portland Regional Manager Shannon Hoffeditz  will also serve as Bend regional manager while Siefkes is on leave.
