ONLY ON 3: Cop says he did personal work for Jayne on town time

READ MORE: ONLY ON 3: Cop says he did personal work for Jayne on town time

LELAND, NC (WWAY) -- For months we've been following reports of corruption within the Leland Police Department. Tonight we have new information on allegations against the former police chief.

Tim Jayne was fired earlier this week, but we're still uncovering controversy within the department while he was chief with officers saying they did work in his neighborhood and at his home while on the clock.

An officer who worked under Jayne, who wants to remain anonymous, says Jayne ordered him to run personal errands and do personal assignments in Jayne's neighborhood when the officer should have been doing police work. The officer says he knows he was not the only member of the department made to do personal things for the chief on duty. He says he knows that officers were made to do work at Jayne's home - like setting up his Internet connection and WiFi - while others were made to pick up supplies for and do work at the community pool. He says one officer was ordered to drive to masonboro harbor in wilmington to pick up lawn chairs for the neighborhood and then made to set them up at the pool.

Although Jayne has already been fired from the department, he could now face criminal charges based on these allegations. The Brunswick County Sheriff's Office says Jayne could be charged with embezzlement of city funds or misappropriation of funds for having officers do work at his home, much like former Brunswick County Sheriff Ron Hewett, who was convicted in 2008.

Our source says he has been questioned by the SBI, but not about working at Jayne's home.

We tried to talk to Jayne about the allegations, but he did not return our phone call.

Wrong Call, Ref

Show me your evidence of this. Go ahead. Give me one link to an article where this has occurred.
I stand by my post, my own observations, and my knowledge of journalism practices. You should apologize for making unfounded accusations. Show me. Oh, you can't, can you? Didn't think so.

oh lord grammar police

Oh you grammar guys are so annoying. I didnt follow the articles, but slamming someone on grammar is about as lame as it gets.

They were the hall monitors in school.

It is a good way to avoid an argument.

Bet there are quite a few

Bet there are quite a few sweatin' it, maybe even the neighbors, maybe even other LEC's. So, tell me, didn't the SBI do an investigation on this and what was the outcome of their investigation? Why didn't the Town Council, Manager and others go ahead and take action from the get go? Why did all this drama have to take place before taking care of Jayne? What kind of salary did Jayne have ---according to the looks of his home, must have been a good one.

Power corrupts ...

So, another example of power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. WiFi's, pool cleanings, working on his boat and favors for neighbors (who lives near Jayne?) are all part of the abuse of power. But, as he ordered these people to do work for him on the clock, paid by the town, who was looking the other way? Why, the people in charge of the department now. Yes, its just beginning - more people will start coming forth to talk, talk about what the Leland community has heard about for years and Bill Farris and the Leland Town Council did nothing but write it up to "rumors" and "disgruntled workers". We in Leland can't wait for this house of cards to fall. You have your work cut out for you, Mr. Hollis!!


You quote one anonymous officer but in the second paragraph, you refer to "officers" (in the plural) saying "they" did work. Is it one...or more making these claims? The source that was questioned by the SBI wasn't asked about this homework, didn't give this information to them, yet choses to volunteer it to a TV station. Are there any verifyable facts...or does that get in the way of this "story"? This seems a little strange, doesn't it?

If you would learn to read

If you would learn to read things in context you wouldn't be so confused.


Wow, you're right! What you wrote made no sense to me at all.


There must be some form of contamination in the drinking water system in Brunswick County. Like the old TV Cop show, Dragnet used to say at the opening, "This is a true story. The names have been changed to protect the innocent" except in Brunswick County the names have been changed so they could do it all over again. This sounds like a story I was just reading a few years back. Oh well, maybe it my mine playing tricks on me hehehe.

Enough already

The man has been fired. Lets move on to healing. Lets move on to letting the town conduct a search for a new police chief without continuing to beat a dead horse. I called for his firing early on. But to continue to add to this story with anonymous people making claims they are still not willing to put their names on after Jayne is gone looks to be over kill. Enough already; lets move on. This town does have great potential you know.

Couldn't agree with "Fellow

Couldn't agree with "Fellow Officer" more. For the record, I despised HIM, and hated many of the things he did, and even had me do.

Yes, I moved up fast. And it was so nice getting favored treatment. All I had to do was go along with ruining the life a honest officer, every now and then, who was a political problem, to our leader.

The things I had to 'Close A Blind Eye To' and 'Go Along With', make my blood boil now, when I think about it. He had me brainwashed, thinking I was just being "loyal". I can't believe I allowed him to fool me.

After several hours of heavy thought, and prayer, I have changed my mind. I have decided to COME FOWARD and take a stand against the former chief. Many people may not like me, for standing up for what is right, but, as a man, I must take a stand

Deep down inside, I was with Bost, Lewis, Foss, and a half dozen others, all along.I don't like what we did to them, but I had to do what was right for me, and my family, at the time. My string-puller had me convinced it was just "Tough Luck" for them, and their families. In many ways, I too am a victim, for allowing myself to be tricked.

Couldn't agree with FellowCop more:"Enough already; lets move on. This town does have great potential you know." Lets join hands, and let the healing begin.


Don't believe you!!!!!1

To Sergeant Two Faced Coward,
I see your words but don't believe any sniffling thing you say. You knew exactly what you were doing despite you or your family. You didn't care for anyone else but yourself. You learned well from your master, slave! Until you come out an tell your real name and apologize for all you have done and made ammends to the people and famlies YOU have hurt then and only then will you begin the healing process. So go and hold hands with yourself. Come and sit in the Employment Security Commision office with the rest of us!

Aweeee. Somebody has been

Aweeee. Somebody has been watching Courageous. Sniff.

LPD Sgt. Confession: Touching, Rousing

Niccceee slam! The sarcasm was so dry I shed not a tear, but let go of a hearty laugh. Why, I feel a song coming on ...

Kumbaya, my Lord, Kumbayaaaa. Lol!

More like "K-Blue Ya, K-Blue

More like "K-Blue Ya, K-Blue Ya". I have all jumped ship, and quickly reversed myself. Just like the PublicAvenger predicted.

With a "Staff" who were just

With a "Staff" who were just as corrupt as him, and backed up his shannigians ? Handpicked by him, and often doing his "dirty work". We need input from Lewis, Bost, and Foss ; insiders who are now independent of the dept, but have a inside track. We need to backtrack, and take a close look, before marching foward. Otherwise, we might march straight into quicksand.

just getting started

I think with this firing more and more people are going to feel more at ease about coming out with stories like this. Like Hewett, this saga is probably just beginning.

Ron Hewitt ...

Very true, but, unlike Ron Hewitt, Jayne was allowed to continue his purge unabated while Bill Farris looked the other way leaving a mess for someone else to deal with. And anyone who either questioned or didn't go along with Jayne and his band of thugs has been fired or forced out. That witch hunt his LA Gestapo did to find out who was leaking information to KBlue really paid off, didn't it? So sad. Guess they never learned that, once you start trying to cover-up your abuse with lies, you have to continue lying but it always falls apart in the end? I'm glad these clowns didn't learn that lesson - think these roaches didn't scatter fast enough before the lights were turned on them. Keep the pressure on WWAY - don't let the rats still in LAPD get away with what they have done! Hopefully you have opened the eyes of the public and this group of bullies - Smith, DellaPia, Kozak, Blasingame, Landen and others - will not be allowed to continue their abuse of power!

Maybe it's already happened...

Just went to the Leland Police website. Are my eyes playing tricks on me or is DellaPia's name missing from the roster? They sure took Jayne off in a hurry.

Where's Slick Rick?

Why is Dellapia not listed on the pd's site anymore? Kblue, is it just plain ol "ill" now?

Found him

Slick rick is now listed as being in Administrative Services. I take that to mean he is now driving a desk.


This just in!!!! Dumb Dumb Delapia was injured in a terrible rear end collision when Kozak abruptly stopped! causing a terrible chain of events!!! The nose of Icky was broken on Kozak's tail bone!! All parties were treated and released with minor swelling around the brown portion of the nose!!!!!Say's who? Say's Kblue!

Someone else?

The list seems shorter, but I can't figure out who else is missing...

Dellapia wasn't there the

Dellapia wasn't there the other day. Must have been an oversight on their part. List looks shorter because Holman's name is gone now. One good change ...... Blasingame is not listed with Street Crimes. My bet is he works the night shift hopefully in a crappy patrol car.

Anonymous Smonymous

Confrontation Clause in the Sixth Amendment clearly states you have a right to know the accuser.

I'd like to know why, a duely authorized agent of law enforcement is to remain anonymous?

What do you have to hide man? You're supposed to be a cop for christ sake. Do you piss sitting down like kblue and all the other morons that live in the Leland Area?

I will call the Brunswick County Sheriffs Office before I ever want help from Leland dumbasses.

Kblue, you really are living proof that guys can get pregnant from humping in the butt.

By the way, retired worked on 82 Engine in the Brox for 23yrs. So he does have a clue.


Maybe somebody up there still needs him so he can go back with all his great knowledge of nothing. And you can go with him.

Have you read anything else

Have you read anything else on this story? Do you not know that the whistle-blowers in this department are getting fired? They fired one officer recently for refusing to take a lie detector test. He has a right to protect his livelihood when people are unjustly getting fired. If this anonymous officer comes forward in a criminal investigation and Jayne is tried, then Jayne has the right to confront his accuser, not before.

And before you go accusing others of being morons or dumbasses, you should learn more about the Constitution and learn how to spell, not to mention refraining from asinine comments like the one you made about kblue.


You are SO invited to my cookout!!!!Say's who? Say's Kblue!

4th Grader.....

WOW!! You really showed me! Bless your little baby heart.....I have one question for you sir, why all the references to urinating and homosexual tendencies? Something you want to tell us? Must have been HARD ON you having to shower with 58 naked men at the fire department ay little guy? I like it when uneducated people try to rank on "Kid Blue" I want so bad to tell your parents what a great job they did, but I don't lie. I was reading your "last will and testament" yesterday, would you mind answering why anyone would want to be buried face down?. I'm (assuming) so all your buddies can drop in for a cold one? But lets not Assume, we all know it only makes an A55 out of only YOU!!!.... talk to you later very stupid person...... Say's who? Say's the retired firefighter bashing Kblue! Sup?


Albert Einstein once said, "The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits." What you always show in all your posts is that you have no limits.


Hey Richard, I can't wait for that cookout you promised.
