I am shocked and saddened by the news of Robert's arrest on drug charges. How can we expect our children to respect the police when they are involved in the very thing that is tearing our communities apart.

Why a you shocked? Saddened for his children whom he left for a tramp. Sorry for his parents, whom are good, good people. Sorry that he will take others with him that do not deserve this.

All I can say is he is a good neighbor.Wasnt like he had lolifes coming to his house at all hours. I still respect him as a close neighbor regardless. Every one makes mistakes. I hope he is ok.

I'm glad they got him. If you are in a respected position, you need to be a respectable person.

He was a wolf in sheep's clothing! The only thing worse than a dirty cop is a dirty, lowlife, perverted preacher.

the people you should feel sorry for are the young people whos lives have been ruined by these dirty cops and those few citizens who have stood up in the past and tried to warn this county about this terrible corruption that rules this county. these honest citizens were laughed at and called crazy troublemakers and sufferd personaly for their efforts, well who seems to have been right all along and all you fine upstanding citizens are realy responsible

he's a lowlife.drug dealing cops should get double the punishment that the average joe gets.they should do their time in general population instead of segregated away from the rest of the jailbirds.maybe they would run into some people they helped throw in jail for doing the same thing.that would be "justice"

Why is it every time someone gets busted it is blamed on Kayla and Rob. You people are ridiculous and need to accept your own mistakes. And quit blaming others for your screw ups. I mean damn if you are going to do it then you deserve to get busted. DUMB ASS!!!!!!!!!!

I WOULD NEVER THOUGHT THAT ROBERTS WOULD HAVE DONE THIS. FOR THE COMMONWEALTH TO TELL LOCAL NEWS ABOUT SOME OF THE EVIDENCE THEY HAVE ON HIM DOES NOT BOADE WELL FOR HIM. HERE HE WAS IN THE SALTVILLE PROGRESS ON THE FRONT PAGE FOR BEING CAUGHT AND THE SECOND PAGE HE WAS IN A NICE SUIT. DID ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA THIS WAS HAPPENING ABOUT ROBERTS?

So it took the police from 2006 till now to catch him? How shameful. Was that when we had police a and police b who was able not to be charged with anything. Roy Evans where are you? Why is he not on a secured bond? Most of us would have to be and not be able to get out of jail.

wernt there some younger folks a few years ago who tried to tell about the corruption going on in this county. they tried to form a political group to straighten things out but the police sent people with secret recorders to their meetings trying to trick them into making threats aginst the law (wich they were smart enough not to do). then they would pull over members and threaten to plant drugs on the leaders of tis citizens group.maybe we should put those kids in charge of this county, at least they are honest

I bet it was Kristin Griffey that wore the audio/video on him. Her and her husband both got busted a few months back. Robbie's charges stuck and he went to jail. Her charges have disappeared and they can't be found on the court website.

I am appalled at the time it took to arrest this police officer when it seems like it was common knowledge that it was going on. I say let's get rid of all the drug dealing cops and clean house. Don't take another 8 years and don't wait for the DEA to do it. by the way, be grateful they stepped in or he probably would have never been caught.
