Some one should look at that Department. Two bad cops last year now this. Will he get to Resign too.

After learning of the allegations, Officer Landry turned himself in to Gardner Police. He was arrested and placed on paid leave by Chief Neil Erickson. WHY is he still getting PAID ????

Because he is in the union. HE has not been tried and convicted yet. But I bet this story is true. He is a gay cop with a much YOUNGER boyfriend. Sounds like a real perv to me.

Just because he is gay doesn't mean he did it! His ex wife is a real NUT! The day he left she told him she will get him put in jail if she has to lie!! The CHILD she has co worst into saying this is a heavy drug user! She has accused two other men of this in past relationships when they broke up!! Both were found NOT GUILTY!!!! So you need to stop judging! All I know is she needs to be STOPPED! She is abusing the law for people who really need it!!(a family member)......

Larry wouldn't and couldn't do anything to hurt anyone. Larry has done so much to help us over the years and im disgusted over these bullshit lies. Only in shit filled gardner ma can a fun loving, hard working and dedicated officer get blamed for something he didnt do. When did being a gay man become a crime? Why should it matter how old Larrys boyfriend is huh.....tylers is more than legal and who larry makes a life with is his choice. Hell if Larry wants to spend his free time shuffling down the sidewalk wearing a bathrobe and fuzzy slippers screaming im too sexy...I'll happily support his choice, I'll be laughing my ass off but I'll support him. I have a novel idea..........worry about yourselves and leave Larry alone. The truth shall set him free and hearsay won't return a conviction. Larry your an awesome guy and you sooooooo totally dont deserve this at all.

One love Larry

Being gay and falling in love with a younger man is not a crime asshole. If he were not gay and just happened to be a cop with a younger girlfriend you wouldn't be saying a damn thing. Shut your good for nothing trap. Larry is such an amazing person. If anyone has a problem its you for posting such stupid shit online.

I bet many other kids will be afraid to come forward that this happen to. and what about the stress that he put this kid though? Just a question What do they do with police officers that do some thing like this ? There is no way they ever go it the jail with every one else so where do they go?? Just think this guys was arresting people for breaking the law and he was a homosexual pedophile cop, I wonder how may arrest were bad. Something to think about

I wonder how many other Police Explorers were being taught the facts of life by the perv. His boy friend was a Police Explorer. How come the police did not see this after he got a boy friend of 19 that belong to the Police Explorers or did they and just turned a blind eye to it?????? I know te rule take care of your own till it hits the paper and tv

Why is this man going to basket ball games in high schools? I would think there must be some type of stay away order form the courts.

10 years ago I was told there was a cop in Winchendon, drinking with minors, he transferred to state police where he didn't last long, then he moved to Gardner where he now trolls for young girls dazzeled by his position & is now dating a young girl, all the while he is a married man, find it hard to believe his wife and co-workers are oblivious to his actions, why is he still on the force? His Dad was a well respected game warden I think? is this why he gets a pass, he took an oath to serve & protect not to use position as a personal hunting ground for niave young girls

First off, Larry Landry is one of the kindest and most dedicated officers to serve with the Gardner Police Department, and due to FALSE accusations brought on by a family member, to draw money from Larry, his career and life has been ruined. Charges were dropped by the state and was found not guilty because the accuser called larry saying he could make all this go away if larry just gave in, and admitted that all this was not true, it was fabricated. So to whoever has a problem with believing that, then believe what you wish, that's your right! Larry Landry will always be a decorated Police SGT in my eyes as well as many others, and as a Law Enforcement officer myself, I support Larry in his decision to stay in the city and move one with his life as well as many others SHOULD. He was falsely accused like many others are falsely accused now a days just to gain some attention. Its sad that a great officer's career came to an abrupt end because someone wanted a check! The 14 Years Larry was on the Department will never go unforgotten because of all the GOOD he did for this city. Him being gay is no one elses business but his own. Just because he gay does not make him a bad person nor a child molester! Grow up people and move on... He has and he's happy.

If he was not guilty why wasn't he let back on the force? WHY IS HE NOT A COP SOMEWHERE ELSE? They did a cover up just like the two other police officers that resign. Gardner PD is known for doing cover up with it comes to their officers.

If anyone ever reads this, to all those backing larry up, open your eyes your all ignorant. I was the kid he mollested so those saying hes such a great person, your are just as evil as him. And to disrespect my mom saying she is lieng, You are wrong, take a look into dcf records, he got caught watching child porn when i was only 5 dcf came into our life's but didnt do anything the polipolice force didnt do anything, and to the man my mom accused of before, she was not the one to take him to court it was larry claiming that my older brothers dad was sexual assaulting him, hmmm maube larry was covering his ass.you are blind as a bat and ignorant, and a heavy drug user are you kidding me are you on crack drug test me you fool.im in the us army infantry, you know what drug i did do while this was going on, pot weed, that was it. The only thing i found to coope with pain. The one thing my mother did wrong was not tell the police the day i told her. My aunt is the one who took me to the police. And oh ya fyi tyler Hartley is to old for him, his new boyfriend is the same age as me 20. So all you supporters of larry. Are just like him in my eyes evil and a pedo, and to think i fight for people like you, what a joke. Druggie bhahaba i smoked pot, and oh yeah in the article where it says his family came to support him, tha t was tyler Hartleys family. Larry adopted me when i was like 7 that guy lured me kn when i was younger then that with toys, wannaknow the truth, he tried telling me by touching him like that its love and he loves me and him touching me like that is love. He eeven bought me a supper soaker squirt gun t he first time he did it. Thegun was red. Seriously i wish i replied years ago.
