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.

Was this your way of trying to frighten me? No.

Was that intended to frighten me??? Still no.

I hate to break it to you

I hate to break it to you Mr. Retired Firefighter, but you only have that right in a court of law. The media has a duty to protect its sources, just as police have a similar duty to protect citizens -- you know, the ones you urged LPD to take their time responding to inspite of their oaths. Have another bagel, sir, and resist the urge to remove all doubt that you are an idiot again. I don't think you can do it.


Ron Hewett Jr. !!

You people need to get a

You people need to get a life. Ron Hewett did his time. Leave the man alone and let him get on with his life. Find something else to talk about for the love of God!

Das Weibstück didn't do

Das Weibstück didn't do anything to Hewett. He just simply made an accurate comparison. If Ron Hewett is incapable of standing up to public scrutiny, he should have never held an elected office and he should have never committed a crime that broke the trust of the public he was elected to serve and protect. I am all for giving a man a break and was one who was more than willing to let him live his life in peace once he got out of prison, but he chose to take a different route and put his two cents worth every now and then because he cannot stand being out of the public spotlight.


Ron Hewett II.
