LELAND, NC (WWAY) — We are still uncovering more details of alleged corruption within the Leland Police Department. We’ve told you all week about issues with the department and Police Chief Tim Jayne. We’ve learned today that Jayne has had officers do work on his home and around his neighborhood for other homeowners.

Yet another source close to the situation says he and other officers worked for Chief Jayne and his neighbors while on the clock for the Leland Police Department. You’ll remember that three years ago, former Brunswick County Sheriff Ron Hewett was indicted on an embezzlement charge that included having deputies do work on his home.

These latest allegations along with sources telling us Jayne took his police cruiser to Myrtle Beach last year for a bachelor party are two instances of the chief allegedly utilizing town resources for his own gain.

We’ve also uncovered a document dated May 26 that shows Chief Jayne using as much gas in his town-owned car as Lt. William Kozaz, who’s often out of the office and in the field. The document shows that during 15-month period, Lt. Kozak bought 403 gallons of gas. Chief Jayne used 395 gallons. Deputy Chief Karl Smith used 360 gallons, but lives 45 minutes away from Leland. And Lt. Rick Dellapia, who’s also on the command staff, lives in Leland and works in house like Chief Jayne, only used 243 gallons.

District Attorney Jon David says if witnesses come to him with their allegations of criminal activity he will ask for an investigation. But we’ve been in contact with multiple sources today who say that while they are glad this information is coming to light, they are also afraid for their jobs and in some cases their life if certain information comes out.

We also contacted Jayne and Town Manager Bill Farris about our story today, again asking them to correct us if any information we were running was incorrect. Farris did not respond.

Chief Jayne sent the following statement: “Test the accuracy of information from all sources and exercise care to avoid inadvertent error. Deliberate distortion is never permissible.”

Jayne copied it from the Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics.

    Even more stupid of the guy and glaring evidence he’s not fit for the job seeing how former Sheriff Hewett got in trouble just recently for similar stuff (not to mention more).
    This is very disappointing. The public faith in our Government officials is at stake over “little” things like this.

  • P. Leahy says:

    I hope that the comments about Chief Jane are unfounded. The Leland police are as a whole professional and dedicated. They’re doing a difficult job and doing it well. They are doing community policing and keeping our neighborhoods safe. We LOVE them!!

    Question?
    Are there ANY Leland police Officers Employed, that currently, reside SOUTH of Shipyard Blvd./Carolina Beach road?

    I ask this question,in response to what I’ve seen and witnessed, As *I* reside around the area, So I as a Citizen,in My question above, would like a Answer, at Least for the Tax Payers that reside in Leland.
    I’ve seen Personally,3 times this month, a LELAND POLICE CRUSIER,, around Lunch-time, in other words, between the hours of,about; 12:30~2:00 PM time frame, of the aforemention described Leland police Crusier headed TOWARDS, (south) , To the Monkey Junction area(s), or points South?
    A Couple questions come to mind…

    Is a Leland Police Officer using a Tax-payer funded & Fueled car, as a *personal* vechile, getting to & from work, on the Lelands Tax-payers Dime?
    Why would this be?

    Is there a Suspect/Crime in question that Occured in Leland, where-as the suspect or evidence is such; that a Leland Police Investgator is Dispatched to *Investagte* here in Wilmington, (at least 3 times I’ve seen, this month)? Where-as; Co-operation between Counties law inforcement agencies, are avalible?

    Is there a Police/Law Enforcement Traning “Seminar” happening during the afternoon Lunch hours, during 3 different times, in this Month, at a secret location towards Monkey Junction? Or down by Carolina/Kure beach?…

    Was the Police Crusier following a Suspected Drug Dealer~Murderer~Rapist, or something of this nature around the same hours, 3 different times during the Lunch-hour(s) this Month?
    Just Courious, Inquiring Mind(s) want to know..
    TIA, Guest…

  • BoomBAM says:

    Lt. Kozac used over 400gal’s of gas in one month? Sounds like he has been doing a lot of driving around using his unmarked car for personal use. There is no way you can use that much fuel driving around Leland in one month. Lt.Dellipia used the least amount because he sits at his house most of the time when he should be at the office. They fired a Lieutenant about six months ago for the same things, sounds like they need to do some more cleaning!!! Should be easy to replace these guys whith unemployment being so high!!!!! Leland…just when you think they have finally made it into a professional department it turns back into the same little crooked town it has always been known for!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • GuestHa says:

    Guess you can’t read. It’s not in one month it’s a 15 month period.

  • guesty says:

    The story said: “…during 15-month period, Lt. Kozak bought 403 gallons of gas.”

    That is over one year, not one month.

  • Phylisha DellaPia says:

    My husband is Lt DellaPia. He is one of the most honest and work conscience people I know. BoomBoom you have spread lies on these post for weeks now! Im sick of it! If the town is not going to take up for my husband, I will! Please provide dates or even one day, that my husband sat at the house, while getting paid. WWAY… I’m so disgusted with the way you are allowing these post to damage these good officers reputation.

  • Guest12168 says:

    Sorry to hear about the “Husband” thing. But did you know he was one of the AWESOME, Terrific piles of trash that shot Sherry Lewis?

  • Guest14 says:

    If you husband and his fellow officers are so innocent why is their leader not responding to WWAY’s request for an interview? Why is the Chief of Police sitting back not saying anything? This, while you claim, his officer’s “good reputations” are getting trashed.

    I just find it funny that you are the second officer’s wife to go Jerry Springer while Chief Jayne says nothing.

    My advice to you, if your husband is innocent, have the town tell the truth. If that can’t happen, simply don’t watch or read anything regarding WWAY.

  • Guest120 says:

    Read the article, it was used in 15 months.

  • guest1495 says:

    You must get your facts from the same source wway does…I know for a fact he never shot anyone…maybe you should get the story right before you slander others …and the town will not allow the chief to comment on anything, that’s why he hasn’t said anything

  • Boom Boom says:

    That was posted by BoomBam, I have defended the good cops, and by the way I know your husband and he is a good cop and a good man… but General Jayne is not…

  • TGIF says:

    I am going to have to agree with the wife in this one. I don’t see how someone can judge a person’s character based on a news article that doesn’t even have verified facts. Were you there to see that he shot the female officer or there when he was ‘supposedly’ working at the Chief’s house? My guess is NO. If you weren’t there, then maybe it’s best to read the articles but keep your comments to yourself. Don’t believe everything you read, until there are facts to back it up. I’m not saying one way or the other but it’s not fair to accuse someone, when you don’t even have the facts. Let the officers do their jobs! I know that if I needed help from an officer, I wouldn’t want them to be preoccupied with these nonsense stories.

  • the citizen says:

    I for one know Lt. DellaPia he is my son-in-law. He is a very level headed honest man who is very professional with his job. He arranges for Santa Cop to collect Christmas toys for disadvanage children in the Leland area. How many of you sharp-tongue people helped with the toy collection? Can you really say that you have helped your community by saying such undocumented things?
    He puts his live on the line each and every day. I wished for my daughter’s sake he worked a regular job but he LOVES being a police officer.
    You people are so cruel, how can you attest to what goes on with a another person’s job.
    Will the police department be seeing your appication soon? Or you just don’t have the gusts to put yourself in their position.

  • Guest14 says:

    I am sure the gifts he collects are part of the rest of the towns money that has been misused.

    Of course, no one is going to have the guts to put their name on here or they may be shot like Sherry Lewis.

    I respect law enforcement but it is a choice. If he is such a good man, let him post on here or let him tell his side of the story. WWAY has already found the law that states it is perfectly ok to tell your side of the story when there is alleged public corruption occuring. I am sure Mr. Scott can find that story again for us.

  • DS says:

    The wife is always the last to know. Read about Vernon Lane from Washington County. http://www.witn.com/home/headlines/Plymouth_Officer_Facing_DWI_Other_Charges_121791779.html Guess everyone, well not everyone, but his friends and co-workers, thought he was wonderful also.

  • Common Sense says:

    I have read most of the articles and I see many people jumping the gun. many of these so called reports are coming via the media, now let’s be real here, the Media will often, distort, add, change stories to sell stories.
    If there is a concern then file your complaint with the town manager and the city council and ask them to investigate
    I have found after many years in Law Enforcement, that the story and the truth are far apart.In my city officers with take home cars are expected to drive them every where for higher police visibility, (deterring crime), so I don’t understand the anger from some citizens over gas.Would you rather the vehicle be sittinng at their house or Pd, doing nothing?WHAT is the big deal about driving a few miles to eat,,,, u put your life on the line but can’t use and extra buck of the City’s gas to grab a nice dinner. ( Rediculous)
    Again file the appropriate complaint before being judge and jury. I have investigated complaints for years and sometimes it’s legitament,sometimes a piece of it is legitament, but most of the time it did not happen.
    I would like to see these credible witnesses that the news claims to have, also keep in mind employees can become disgruntled when they are not getting what they want,,,,,

  • Mean People Suck says:

    Phelicia, of course your are trying to save your husbands job and reputation, that is your duty. However, it is his duty as an officer to not issue orders to take out Sherry Lewis’ crotch. Your husband is not a nice person. In fact, he is worse than Tim Jayne ever thought about being.

    I believe you have even told him he better hold on to his job with Leland because no one would ever hire him again. This is the case with most of the Leland command staff. Tim Jayne hired the local misfits to act as his guard dogs. Well, the jig is up. I hope a lot of people lose their jobs and their freedom over the hell they put good officers in, each and every day.

  • SurfCityTom says:

    if the officers are driving Tahoes, EXplorers, or Crown Vics, at best they average 20 miles per gallon.

    Four hundred gallons at 20 MPG equals 8000 miles; divide that by 15 months and you get a little over 500 miles per month driven. Assume a 20 day work month, and you’re talking 25 miles per work day.

    The math may be off slightly, as I am not aware of their driving habits or vehicle assignment.

    But, this is not the big issue some are trying to make it.

    YOu’ve got other much more serious issues. Stay focused and someone have the scrotal fortitude to speak up on the record with the DA. Until that happens, not much is going to get corrected.

    The Town Manager has already announced retirement.

  • Guest9995 says:

    Is my math right? 403 gallons divided by 15 months. I come up with 26.86 gallons, average per month. That looks like about 1 tank (2 at the most).

  • SurfCityTom says:

    most, if not all jurisdictions allow the Police Officer to drive his assigned cruiser to and from his home to the station. Something about being visible in the community.

    You’re trying to beat a drum that won’t be beat.

    Unless there is a town restriction on commuting outside of the jurisdiction, the officer is doing nothing wrong if he lives at or near Monkey Junction.

  • sparris says:

    Are you serious? Pop another pill you idiot, you watch way too much tv. Are you seriously questioning this man collecting toys for kids? You are a sad individual. I feel sorry for you! He doesn’t have to explain anything to you. You and Mr. Scott need to find some real facts before the people in the real world believe any of this crap. Mr. Scott hasn’t provided any “real facts” nor has any of has alleged sources been identified. Why can’t they name the alleged officer’s who worked at Chief Jayne’s house? How are all these “sources” scared for their jobs? One article said the source was a past employee… who could not be named. Has Mr. Scott heard about the Whistler Blower Act. Maybe he should explain that to these so called “sources”…. Because just maybe these “sources” are not providing Mr. Scott with the truth and that is why the don’t want to go public. Breaking news tomorrow uncovered by Guest14 and Mr. Scott…. Unnamed Sources state: Chief Jayne and his officer’s killed Kennedy. Get a life!

  • Phylisha DellaPia says:

    Our First Amendment right gives you the right to speak anonymously online as a “faceless coward”. It is a sad world we live in that an anonymous coward can slander a good person’s reputation and hide behind something that our founding fathers fought to protect. However, there is the Sixth Amendment right that gives my husband the opportunity to “confront” his accusers. Attacking someone personally without justification and doing it anonymously is just wrong. The statement you provided is untrue and inaccurate. I am not here to defend anyone but my husband. Unless you can prove your statement as fact, then you have committed the same crime that you have claimed this department has… Are you publicly and anonymously criticizing and attacking these officers simply for entertainment? Because not one of you can or will provide any proof to your claims.
    I am proud to be a Leland Police Officer’s wife and I’m proud of the job he does.

  • Phylisha DellaPia says:

    I apologize… thank you for your kind statement. People are on here blogging without any thought for their fellow human being or fellow police officer. Please think of the hurt your words can cause… that is all I ask. I apologize again.

  • Phylisha DellaPia says:

    Mr. Guest14 (Anonymous coward) I will take your advice…. I will not watch or endorse anything sponsored by WWAY. In reference to “the second officer’s wife to go Jerry Springer”.. I have no idea what that reference refers to… I’m assuming it may have been the show you were watching on TV today while the rest of us were being productive citizens at work. Thank you again for the great advice!

  • guesty says:

    Your math is correct. That isn’t much fuel at all.

  • Kelly Blue says:

    I know Officer Lewis, The female your husband and Bill Kozak shot in the groin? Yes he’s a wonderful man! NOT! I don’t blame you or step father for sticking up for him. But your hearing his side of the story. Soon Mrs. Lewis will release a statement letting all of you know how AWESOME your husband is. And Step father? it’s “life” not live on the line. Also he does the Christmas drive because he “has to” trust me, its not something he wants to do.

  • JaneQPublic says:

    Maybe you should drive down to Leland, follow 74 east until you see the industrial park/BCC north campus, drive through Windsor Park, and just count the WPD cars parked in their. I bet there’s at least 15. I’m not complaining because it seems to be that where there is a police car parked, people usually try not to get to stupid in that general area. But if you are going to point fingers at leland then you need to look at the surrounding areas also.

  • Windsor Park Resident says:

    The Leland Police and their families have turned Windsor Park into a TRAILER park.

  • Duh says:

    @ Phylisha DellaPia — the first one to go Jerry Springer was your good buddy Stephanie Blasingame. You know, the one you are spanking in your New Year’s photos and who is grabbing your breasts in another pic? Jerry, Jerry, Jerry!

  • BOOM BOOM says:

    This cat loved to text, he has a blackberry that is paid for by perdium. get the records and see how accurate that source is. they should be available through the carrier. it is my belief that its only 13 miles across leland, he only lived 4 miles from work, if thats not enough proof for Jon David, who is of course his neighbor then just have an outside prosicuter come in.

    If he is honest, he will resign.

  • guest111 says:

    we are going to have to hear all this over and over before these folks are put out of office, in jail or whatever is going to happen to them. Hewett’s drama went on for months and months and it sounds like this chief has the same cocky attitude and work ethics as Hewett. Here we go again.

  • Guest28451 says:

    NOT!!! Anybody out defending this crooked peice of crap with a badge needs to seriously rethink their logic. This guy is just as crooked as the former Sheriff of Brunswick. He abuses his authority, he shirks his responsibility, and on top he commits fraud by falsifying his training records and of course he single handedly somehow threated the town manager to keep his job and the asst town manager quit as a result.

  • Here we go again with the former Sheriff of Brunswick County. Get real people! Seriously, do you think the current Brunswick County Sheriff’s Department is any cleaner…….if you do you have your head buried in the sand!

  • Guest987 says:

    Oh wow! Corruption in a police department? Anything to do with the government is going to be corrupt. Look at New Hanover Sheriffs deputies that live in other counties and drive their cruisers home. I know one deputy that lived on Little Kelly Road in Rocky Point, it takes 30 minutes to get to the Sheriffs Department from there, and he drove to and from work with his cruiser. Should tax payers be paying for his gas to drive back and forth to his house on his own time? What about State Troopers, sitting in the back of the Kangaroo on Castle Hayne Road? I was waiting on someone next door one day for over an hour and they were there when I arrived and still there when I left, two cruisers, not protecting or serving, just wasting time, time that I paid for. Same goes for Wilmington Police, I’ve seen their cruisers in Rocky Point and Burgaw, for what? They all waste money, steal, lie, cheat, and rarely help the public. This article at http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2011/09/09/citizen-ticketed-for-directing-traffic-after-police-fail-to-in-south-pasadena/ tells a story of a man that helped direct traffic after a traffic light went out, and the police ticketed him for directing traffic, then they left, they didn’t stay to ensure the safety of other motorists. Police don’t care about the public, they automatically assume everyone is guilty of something anyway. If someone isn’t breaking the law, they just make something up or plant evidence.

    tl;dr
    Police/Government are corrupt, deal with it.

  • ILM NATIVE says:

    THAT HAS TO BE ONE OF THE TRUEST STATEMENTS THAT HAS BEEN ON HERE FOR AWHILE…ALL COPS WILL LIE AND ABUSE POWER AT SOME POINT IN THEIR CAREERS. THEY HAVE THEIR LITTLE CLUB AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC IS BASICALLY SCUM TO THEM.

  • Guest2020 says:

    Were you there with those officers behind the Kangaroo? How do you know that they weren’t on a break? Police Officers get lunch breaks too. I live in a neighborhood where officers from at least four different jurisdictions live and at least three drive their cruisers home. And although we live a stone’s throw away from a known drug area, we have no trouble here, because people are aware of the police presence. That is the purpose of police officers driving their cruisers home.

  • the citizen says:

    Since you are so wonderful at pointing out all the problems with the police department, will we be seeing your name on the voting ballet? Well I guess not, you make these awful comments and don’t even use your name…..If all your issues are true, you shouldn’t be afraid to use your name.

  • Guest5382 says:

    So Tim wants to quote journalist ethics – why doesn’t he try this one:

    “I recognize the badge of my office as a symbol of public faith, and I accept it as a public trust to be held so long as I am true to the ethics of police service. I will never engage in acts of corruption or bribery, nor will I condone such acts by other police officers.

    I know that I alone am responsible for my own standard of professional performance…”

  • ILM NATIVE says:

    “I will never engage in acts of corruption or bribery, nor will I condone such acts by other police officers” That is total crap all officers cover for their buddies, if not this situation would have been cleared up along time ago. My oestion for about the 10th time..WHY do not other officers rat these scumbags out?? If they don’t they are just as guilty as them, period end of story.

  • youtake says:

    Who went to his house and did what work???? How many times and when?? If your willing to put officers names with the gas and use officers names in the past why not use them now? Atleast give us more details. I live in Leland and would like to know these things. I don’t think if he gets a phone stipend that is makes his phone public. But it would be nice to see along with his emails.

  • Retired LEO says:

    First let me say that I am a retired law enforcement officer. ALL law enforcement is crooked, there is NO good ones. The only difference is some hide it better than others. I’ve seen it many times where upper management never attended mandatory training but were always signed in as doing such. Lower staff can’t say anything or they would be fired and/or punished. It’s a dog eat dog war and only the big dogs ever win. I seen a Capt. get 3 DWIs within 5 yrs and never even got a write up. They were always done away with and brushed under the rug. This with the help of RC “Froggy” Soles. Trust me, I could write a book but who would listen ???

  • the citizen says:

    If you saw all this going on and didn’t report it, then you are just as guilt. All law enforcement officers are crooks…come on really!! So because some women are hookers..you are saying then all women are hookers!! Same reasoning… And the subject of RC Soles blame the kind citizens for voting him in not the police officers.

  • guesty says:

    Since you state you are a retired LEO and you state that ALL law enforcement is crooked, how much money did you take on the side? How many times were you bought off? Were you doing drugs on the job? I would just about be willing to bet you retired from a Northern police department and moved down here. Just a guess.

  • JUST WONDERING!!! says:

    It sounds like you are speking from experience! That is a strong statement to be untrue! It sounds like you were a crooked cop and are pointing fingers to make yourself feel better. I am a current police officer and I CAN ASSURE YOU, I am not crooked nor is any of my staff. As far as DWIs, Training and Standards would not allow a NC Police Officer to get even 1 DWI without an indepth review of this officer! Do not qualify all officers on how you carried yourself in your career! And your right, no one would want to read of the corruption you got away with.

  • Guest2020 says:

    First let me say that I am not a retired law enforcement officer. Secondly let me say that you are full of baloney. If there are no good officers, then that means that you were a crooked one. I think you should let your former employer know and forfeit your pension, but my guess would be that you wouldn’t have the guts to back up your words with action.

  • Gramps1935 says:

    3 DWI’s in 5 years ? All cops were crooked? I seriously doubt you were even in Law Enforcement.

  • Guest1970 says:

    Yes, there are some officers who stray and their marriages get ruined because of it, but I think your percentages are off. Being a law enforcement officer is an extremely stressful job. And no, it’s not the only high stress job. The difference is that they generally don’t discuss their work with their spouses like people in other professions do. I can’t say that I blame them for not wanting to bring their jobs home with them. Things like that take their toll on the relationship. My sister has been married to a law enforcement officer for twenty years and the officers they know whose marriages have been ruined were due to the nature of the job itself.

  • robocop says:

    These are two of the most ignorant people I have run across in awhile. Police Officers put their lives on the line 24/7/52/365 all for a pittance and end up with ruined health and marriages. We do this because we believe in right and wrong and in helping as many people as we possible can. Yes there are a very tiny percentage that are crooked and a disgrace to our profession but that percentage is less than one one hundredth of one percent. The lowest of any other profession. Additionally WE are the ones that put those Officers in jail and hate them more than anyone else. It is people like you who are one of the biggest problems. You probably think that ‘snitching’ is wrong too. Moron.

  • A citizen says:

    so when are you going to run for sheriff and save us from all of this corruption?

  • ILM NATIVE says:

    so you are the ones that put them in jail well yeah!! BUT don’t even try and tell me you aor your buddies don’t cover up crap that goes on, I was a sheriff and my brother in law retired from law enforcement. I got out because of the crap that goes on and the lies and coverups that I saw..not only me but alot of my friends said screw it..We have a conscience and could not be a part of the BS that goes on.The old we do this to help people and make a difference is BS, it’s done mostly for the power trip. If the money is so bad resign, find another line of work or quit complaining, the public in general doesn’t care. You and your buddies would throw us under the bus why would you expect us to do any different???? The one 1/100 th of a percent are the ones who have been caught. Do you need me to start posting examples so you can be educated???

  • Guest2020 says:

    I can say that I have never had a negative run-in of any kind with a police officer. The ones who have pulled me for various traffic offenses have always been very nice and respectful. I was raised to do the same. There have been times in my life that I needed to call the officers and they have always responded quickly and again, they were very respectful.

    Like any other profession you are going to get some real duds, but we shouldn’t let the few bad ones taint the entire profession. Every time an officer puts on that uniform he does so knowing that he is putting his life on the line. Most of us couldn’t deal with the stress of doing that everyday. You add to it, the attitudes they have to put up with, the abuse they get from the very people they serve, the horrible things they have to witness and having to deal with some of the scummiest people on earth, you get someone who has to be strong to be able to cope with it. It doesn’t help that they don’t talk about their jobs with their spouses like the rest of us do because they certainly don’t want to bring their jobs home with them.

    I certainly have seen in the news a number of times over the years where police officers have been arrested. In fact, there was one from the Leland PD just a few years back. I don’t believe that Leland’s PD treated it properly, but the Sheriff’s office did and I from what I know of the situation, respectable police officers don’t want anything to do with him.

    So I say, when dirty cops come to light, we should treat them as such and get them out of law enforcement and when appropriate send them to prison like everyone else. For all of you upstanding police officers, I raise my hat to you and I thank you for everything you do.

  • JaneQPublic says:

    I’m not even going to get into the discussion on who is dirty in the law enforcement community, the bad ones give everybody a bad name. But don’t sit here and talk about “ruined marriages”, because I have worked with leo for many years, and I’m here to tell you, 90% of the ruined marriages were ruined at the fault of the OFFICER, not because of the job (technically). If these officers would keep their you know what in their pants, they might not have failed marriages. I can honestly say that every leo I know that has a failed marriage, is because they were caught screwing somebody else. I am an LEO supporter 100% but don’t blame the public because they took a vow they couldn’t keep.

  • nobody says:

    These kinds of allegations are falling on deaf ears within the city government? Looks like before this is all said and done, the whole city government will need looking into for not taking some sought of swift action. I am betting this saga will not have a pretty ending. Leland PD and its police chief has become red meat for this TV station.

  • Scooter says:

    Yea Leland needs Brett Hobbs back!!!

  • Pizza Boy says:

    It doesn’t take much gas to get to the Gym by Piggly Wiggly just go over there every weekday around 4:30 sometimes earlier and see how many Police vehicles you see out there. Atleast a black Tahoe and a Explorer sometimes more…

  • LA says:

    They don’t go in the gym or it don’t look like they do!!!! They all look like they sit a a buffet all day!!

  • Sparris says:

    What is your point? Aren’t officers suppose to stay fit? Shouldn’t this be a requirement? I’ve seen a couple of officers in Leland that definitely need a trip to the gym. I see several officers at night eating together at the Mexican restaurant for hours… Sgt Clark and his boys… So why bring up the gym but not the restaurants, brother.. If I was going to rob something it would be on their watch.
    How about everyone’s mileage. They all have take home cars. If I was the Chief I would welcome the SBI maybe it would weed out the “thugs” and all the personnel records of past and present employees posting on here would finally come to light… Let’s not forget about the ones posting on Facebook. Isn’t his wife a convicted felon? Isn’t he also a Belville commissioner? Ask him about his investigation and why he was fired? That would make a great Only on WWAY story! I’m sure you have his e- mail address.

  • Guest9870 says:

    Oh my!!! The corrupt information that you have uncovered may be just what we need to get these animals out of here. The officers are going to the gym in Leland, 200 yards away from the gas station where they get gas, with that serious of information nevermind firing them, they should be in prision. This is far better than anything WWAY has reported on. How they missed this one is beyond me. Thank God you were watching this corruption go on. You probably will get a journalism award for this info or at least some kind of reward. In fact they will probably rename Leland after you for this selfless act of reporting the news. Here is some great breaking news that I’m sure you are aware of: Sources close to the situation tell us Chief Jayne is not washing his hands after using the restroom…..you are a joke..

    Air-head did you ever think that they were going to the gym AFTER WORK? They probably are in better shape than you. It appears you spend most of your time in the Piggly Wiggly parking lot or sitting at the computer thinking of trash to say. I am sure the Leland Police have a opening for a eagle-eye like you.

    I’ll go out on a limb here and say that you have a few skeletons in your closet also…BROTHER! You must have a pretty boring life to sit for hours and watch cops eat. Glad to see that you have it all figured out.

    are unaware of the DWI stops (not written up) and they were covered up by other officers than they would not obviously act on it…say like giving the drunk cop a ride home or calling someone to come get him. Get it now Columbo???
    How can you say with no doubt NO one on your staff is crooked? You with them 24/7…You must work in Leland!

    To be honest I’m sure there are plenty of officers that would love to open a can of worms on a few people and their dirty dealings, however, remember where we live, and it is in the heart of good ol’ boy country. If someone were to find out that they told (and I assure you they would), their job would be done for and they would probably be terrorized till the end of time. Not to mention they probably couldn’t do anything about it because somewhere along the line I’m sure someone has the DA in their back pocket. Like I said there’s plenty to be known, but who is going to protect the person who decides to air out the dirty laundry?
