Here you go, read all about it....http://www.newzjunky.com /police/coplog121120lcso3.htm

If this doesn't tell you what happened, then go sit in court the next time and judge for yourself. How many times has he done this in the last six years, that no one knows about. He just got caught this time. I think I will apply for his Job and then I will also have some nice transportation instead of having to keep fixing my vehicles at my expense. Time to get rid of the whole department since we need to cut the fat out of the budget. I bet his snowmobile and atv buddies are "crushed".

He's an idiot and bully. Got mad at me because I didn't want the trail running through my farm. Didn't want the ATV's around my kids and animals. He told me he would be back later to ask my husband. My husband said no also. He basically bullied us. We just don't have the room on our land for the trail. Karma works, you just have to wait.

He's entitled to a fair trial. Innocent until proven guilty. Don't judge until the facts are all in.

Cannot believe our golden goose Robert Diehl would ever do such a thing. Rick, please tell me it aint so.

You pushed for this position. Needed an ATV bought it, Needed a company car with no strings attached, GRANTED. Want to use the county truck for your own personal use, who cares? Want to take your family for a ride on the county ATV go ahead.

How much has Lewis County Tax Payers coughed up for this useless department? Lawsuit after Lost Lawsuit. Crushed stone upon Crushed stone. Do not question it, it's selling chicken wings, beer, and minimum wage jobs.

One can only hope that six legislators have enough
GUTS to say no to this worthless department.

Pendergast talks about unfunded mandate after unfunded mandate. This is a Lucas unfunded mandate.

Yes, this would jibe with Mr. Diehl's abilities pretty well.
If anyone knows what stupid looks like, it is certainly Carp!

Well, then we all should turn in our own repair bills for hitting all the pot holes in the village through out all the construction. I wish I had a personal vehicle that my taxes were paying for..I guess when he took the job, he should have been given just a vehicle to use during working hours. How many employees get to use the county owned vehicles for personal use 24/7...????

Doesn't the sheriff and undersheriff do that? Maybe others too?
It's good that they don't have to pay for gas, don't you think?
Insurance, tires, maintenance----what a great deal!

Actually yes i'm sure the sheriff and under sheriff take their vehicles home. I don't think they use them for personal use. If they get called during their 24/7 on call duty, you would expect they would have their patrol cars. But to use a vehicle and it be your only vehicle that is owned by the taxpayers that is wrong. I'm sure the whole story will eventually come out. Thanks Prissy for pointing out that others take theirs, but how many use it for work purposes? You seem to know a lot, maybe you can get a correct count so we will all know.

I am sure everyone would be surprised how many take stone from the gravel yard. There should be a log and some over site if this case is such a big deal.

I have a feeling now more than ever that the stone used in my driveway a few years back probably was free for the delivery driver --- but I paid handsomely for it.

Alas, I have no record but will be more vigilant in the future, especially after hearing about this story!

OK, I just read the story from another posting. Looks like the over site is working! Glad the problem was discovered and brought to the attention of the proper authority.

(Next time I have stone delivered, I'll ask for a receipt of the stone to verify purchase, just to be sure.)

Bob is officially STUPID.
3000 worth of stone in his own driveway?

Hes a nice guy but time for him to move on.

He also never should have been allowed to bring a work vehicle home unless he was using it for a meeting or trail work in the opposite direction of his office the next day.
Even that should have been limited.
When he was living in Rodman , he was putting 40 miles a day on that truck just going home and back

How about when he used the county truck to pull his personal camper to a weekend retreat at Wanakena NY in August. Or about taking his daughter to school from his Martinsburg home to South Jeff School.

This is all a joke. Nothing will happen to him except he wll lose his job. I bet he pleads it down to a broken tail light. Someone should check out Legislatue Burke too. He is about as corrupt as they come.
