Sounds like too many Palos'
And it does seem like they are stupid to not miss that much money.
Busy with those pancake breakfasts I suppose.

The former "first couple" as we used to call them. They had their nose in everything. I guess money was tight so why not grab $350,000!

Lets hold all the comments until we know all the truth, lots of people get arrested but aren't convicted.

Hey Scott, the trail to your personal bank account is an easy trail to find. Lets not be naive here. They didnt hide it. Cashing Palos Fire checks and depositing them into your own account is stupid. They are busted.

Must have been taught by the former Chief. Pretty sad that $99,000.00 a year plus the $14.00 per hour the wife makes, isn't enough to live on. What's worse is to mess up a career like that.

Nope. They're the ones that have it right. Charlie Sopko is the Deputy Chief of Oak Forest Fire Department. His wife worked for and is accused of stealing from the Palos Fire Protection District while she was employed there.

There are multiple fire protection districts with Palos in their name. Mrs. Sopko is accused of stealing from the Palos Heights Fire Protection District, so that person did make a correct correction, just not in the most courteous of manners.

I wonder if they got lessons on how to embezzle from Don and Dolly Jacobs from Posen who stole over $250.000.00 from the kids in the Posen Park District. He went to jail and she is a snooty clothes folder at Sams club. And in their mind, they did nothing wrong.

I'm sure they have all those covered. They should also look into lacrosse club he started.

The Oak Forest fire department is a joke. Last chief a thief, now the asst. is a thief, better check the park district to.

Forgot about the Oak Fest, they probably all skim of that. This town is run by the men's club. They are all friends and interconnected somehow. Like I said firefighters are a joke here, loaded with cheaters to.
