FIRST ON 3: SBI, Attorney General investigating Leland Police Department

LELAND, NC (WWAY) -- The North Carolina Department of Justice confirms there is an active investigation into criminal allegations made against the Leland Police Department. DOJ spokeswoman Noelle Talley says the SBI opened the investigation November 1.

In early October, Leland Town Council directed Police Chief Tim Jayne to send a letter to the SBI requesting its assistance looking "into all allegations of criminal conduct by the Leland Police Department."

Talley says the SBI investigation is a result of that request. She also says the investigation is being supervised by the Attorney General's Special Prosecutions Unit. That request, she says, came from District Attorney Jon David "to oversee that investigation and serve as prosecutor for any charges that may result."

In late September David told WWAY he asked the Attorney General to appoint another attorney to be the point person for anyone who wanted to come forward with allegations about the Leland Police Department. At the time, though, the AG's office said it was available to answer any questions brought forward by law enforcement agencies investigating allegations about Leland, but not the general public like David said.

Thank you WWAY

Keep the heat on. The safety of Leland residents and the good members of the Leland Police Department depends on it. I'm stunned that Jayne is still employed by LPD. But most of this never would have come to light without WWAY's reporting. You are doing more good than you know. Please, keep it up.

Eye Don't

I don't get it WWAY......What happened to all the people that defended the Police Department? The wives, The Officers themselves? Did it get really quite in here? Its so quite you can hear "Timillicky" get fired. Say's who? Say's Kblue!

lack of leadership at the very least

At the very least and the best you could assume is that Jayne and his leadership staff (leadership used at the lowest possible level) are deviod of character, can not lead as they do not posses the character required nor example in life to do so. The lack of Farris to then take some leadership roll shows his inability to perform tough decisions, not what the taxpayer and citizen of leland deserves. Now take that to the district attorney that refuses to be the cheif law officer of the county and passes the buck, include the town council, ALL LACK CHARACTER OF LEADERSHIP. All wish someone else to do the hard job they have been paid, voted and agreed to do when sworn in. As a retired service member, I have never seen such a total lack of personal accountability and lack of leadership. Even worse Jayne refuses to see the signs on the road and will not resign, this goes to his intelligence, his believing the good old boy network will clear him of gross lack of trust and confidence of the CITIZENS he is sworn to protect and follow the law. Saw guys like this, they lead by the rank they wear not the character they posses. Jayne, David, Farris spare you citizens further embarassement, take a chance to have some CHARACTER, resign and let us move forward with real service to the GOOD citizens of Leland.

Better words have ever been spoken

I will sponsor this message.

it's about time

Tim Jayne needs to go. You can't run the town like it's the wild friggin west. Do whatever you want because you have no accountability. Leland used to be a town full of dirtbags, we get some nice neighborhoods but the dirtbags are still here, they're just in the police department. Leland Pd is a joke. Let the sheriff's department take over before they run this town into the ground. Your days are numbered, enjoy them while you can because it seems to be like this time you have screwed over the wrong people.

yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its about time now that they have ruined good careers and lied about everything they've done. What ever you've done in secret will be made public. Whatever you've done in the dark will be brought to the light. BE SURE YOUR SINS WILL FIND YOU OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. Hey Bill, Ricky and Tim take another polygraph for me! You guys have been lying for so long you believe the crap you tell. There is a term for that. Ever heard the term Pathological!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S.S. Hey Tim guess you'll have to go to another confessional at St. James HUH?????????????????????????????????????????????????????
I hope the roof doesn't come down on your fat head when God's lightning strikes!

Welcome SBI

Let the SBI interviews begin.
LOTS of interviews...

TIMILLICKY!!!!

Dear Mr. Balboa (Tim)"bye" dear tic tac head (ill)"bye" dear Bill Kozak's baby back cracker jack I want my money back Shadow? (icky)"bye" And although a short run? its been a ton of fun you'll be fired for what you've done, in a bun under the sun just for fun, hun! and all this is true! Say's who? Say's the now rhyming Kblue! To you.......Whats new? Its over now SHEW!

Problem solver or muck-raker

I have quietly watched the news and read the accounts here. I am not affiliated with the Leland Police Department. I am merely a Leland resident. Whether Chief Jayne is the source of the problem, I do not know. The only thing that seems apparent to me, from reading the posts here is that the person identified as "KBlue" enjoys this forum to personally attack and name call. "KBlue"s conduct in this forum raises the appearance of bias and undercuts any genuine concern for justice. It appears from earlier posts that he/she may be a Leland police officer. If that is true, and respecting his/her right to free speech, when entrusted with a badge and a gun and the power to deprive people of their constitutional rights, there is an expectation from the citizens for a degree of maturity, professionalism, and self-control. All of which appear to be lacking by "KBlue". If "KBlue" is a Leland police officer, then I believe he/she should be terminated and allowed to pursue the infatuation with Dr. Seuss. If "KBlue"s behavior is indicative of the culture at the Leland Police Department, then we as citizens should all be afraid.

??????

For being funny he/she should be fired? Perhaps this is what Leland is lacking, a sense of humor. Now if he/she broke the law? Without a doubt!!! But how are you going to fire a person for being silly? People get real! The only "real" reason anyone hates Kblue is because he/she gets under your skin with a raw sense of humor. Don't like it? Don't read it. Say's who man? Says a Kblue fan.....

kblue

My name is Kblue and I approve this message. Say's who? Say's Kblue!

Fbi??

What happened to the supposed federal investigation that was on going is that still on going or is on hold or does it cover totally different material then the SBI is looking into

I know, right!

I'm totally confused with the lack of follow through with these stories. They never seem finished or have a connective thread that links them together for those of us who have been following since the beginning. Sherry's interview fell short. I know there had to be so much more that could have been said. Who gave Landen the orders to shoot her? Where's that answered? Can we get an article explaining if there is a SBI and FBI investigation going on at the same time and why or why not? Can we get an update on the deficencies found within the department? What about an update on the status of the one officer relieved of duty? Isn't it about time for him to go back to work? Why was he relieved anyway? What gives, WWAY? Tie this stuff together and finish it out. Too many questions have been raised with no answers. It's your job to provide the public with answers. Put the heat back on. Show us why you're #1.

k

The FBI was investigating something completely apart from the corruption. Tic Tac head Bill Kozak and his Chubby shadow "what do we do next Boss" Rick Delapea asked that he shoot her. "Juice" "i'll point my gun at your face" Blassengame lied about his service so he could get out of his legal updates. He only lied about the dates he was deployed. WWAY has tied everything together perfectly, All this has been said before. Not being rude juss sayin Say's who? Say's Kblue!

Sad

So Blassengame couldn't find the 4 hours necessary to do legal update? That is a pitiful excuse that holds no merit for not completing in-service training.

Agreed

He's a "different breed" of Officer. To say the least....Say's who? Say's Kblue!

Different Breed

Hey Kblue tell your fans where you're rhyming from... Do they have mics in the unemployment line?

Kblue all day long!

Kblue2221984? You are the man/women!!!! Glad to see your back!

Jayne/David

I wonder if the boys from Raleigh will look into Mr. David's association with Chief Jayne. Is it possible that Mr David and our Good Chief's Friendship is the reason the SBI has just recently been asked to look into things? Looks like Mr David himself would have asked them in months ago when the allegations first started surfacing.

Could it be he is somehow involved? How could all this have gone on right under Mr David's nose without him having some sort of knowledge of problems in the Leland Police Department.

David's job is to protect

David's job is to protect the interests of the public, not his cronies. I am so glad I did not vote for him.
