On October 5, 2018, FBI Special Agents asked the defendant about allegations that he had been diverting prescription pills from the NYS Medication Drop Box located at the Kenmore Police Station. Breitnauer admitted that he was unlawfully using hydrocodone, a Schedule II controlled substance, and had been taking hydrocodone pills from the box for his personal use. The defendant guided agents to a closet in his office, where he had stashed more than 100 hydrocodone pills that he had diverted from the drop box.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Gary Loeffert.
