PHOENIX (AP) _ Two veteran deputies of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office have died, but officials didn't immediately release the manner of death.

Sheriff's officials said 25-year veteran Law Enforcement Sergeant Ernie Quintero and 15-year-veteran Detention Officer Kevin Fletcher both died Monday.

Quintero was assigned to the Court Security Division while Fletcher was assigned to the Fourth Avenue Jail.

Sheriff's officials issued a brief statement that said Sheriff Paul Penzone and everyone at the Sheriff's Office extended their ``deepest sympathy to the Quintero and Fletcher families for their loss.''

The statement also said ``MCSO will forever be in gratitude of Sergeant Quintero's and Officer Fletcher's service and contributions to the agency and our community.''
