Of course they won't tell you what this public leech stole. I guess it's a "big secret" again.

Ever notice how quiet the police are when it comes to their own mental problems?


A former Frankfort police officer charged with illegally seizing another officer’s phone records is now accused of possessing stolen items from the village police department, authorities said.

Former officer Daniel Hermann, 39, also was charged Friday with first-degree criminal contempt, a felony, after he showed up at his home in Yorkville allegedly in violation of an order that had just been issued out of Oneida County Family Court, Yorkville Officer Patrick Collea said.

Herrman was then charged with two misdemeanor counts of fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property for two police items he still had from his prior employment as a Frankfort village police officer.

“He did not have permission to have these items from the current administration of the Frankfort Police Department,” Collea said, without identifying the specific items.

Herrman currently is being held at the Oneida County jail on $25,000 bail.

Herrman was removed from the village police force in July 2010 after it was confirmed that Herrman no longer was certified to be a police officer.

Herrman’s departure occurred around the same time Steven Conley retired as police chief amid mounting allegations that portrayed Conley as a belligerent, out-of-control administrator. Among those allegations was a disputed report that Conley choked one of his officers, Samuel Ameduri III, during a heated argument in February 2010.

Herrman and Conley also left the police department just as evidence surfaced that Herrman had faxed emergency request forms to Verizon Wireless in order to seize Ameduri’s phone records dating back to the time Conley allegedly choked Ameduri.

Herrman has since been charged with forgery and official misconduct in connection to Ameduri’s phone records.

But just as Herrman was appearing in Herkimer County Court last Wednesday on those forgery charges, authorities were also trying to locate Herrman due to reported concerns for his welfare and state of mind, Collea said.

Herrman was later taken into custody for a mental evaluation. Upon his release Friday, Herrman was directed to meet police at the Yorkville Police Station but instead he went directly to his home while officers were there, Collea said.

That’s when Herrman was charged with violating a court order, although he had not threatened anyone at that time, Collea said.

The alleged stolen police items were discovered during an investigation by Yorkville police that began several weeks ago, Collea said. That investigation is still underway, but New York State Police are now involved as part of the investigation has moved out of Yorkville’s jurisdiction, Collea said.

In the meantime, Herrman’s attorney, Michael Daley, on Monday said that Herrman’s newest charges will be taken into consideration as his other case moves forward in Herkimer County.

“Any new allegations certainly will impact any negotiations on a possible disposition for the pending charges,” Daley said.

Wow he prolly had a badge and some weapon. He knows no cop will believe he's still a cop but prolly used the badge and weapon to go about his daily business bothering people starting conflicts and abusing people. Essentially it was still just like being an upstate cop without the free salary for standing around talkin all day like most cops!

Most likely it was a badge and gun that he possessed. Why else would his bail be set at $25K? This guy was fired by the UPD and then by Frankfort. I didn't think any dumbshit cop could ever get fired from Frankfort since they hire just about any shitbag that thinks they are a cop.

Unbelievable that this dipshit is still out in the community. I see him all the time at Whitesboro Soccer...fuckin' scumbag loser gets off more that Jenna Jameson on a Friday night. He's faced soooo many charges and yet nothing ever seems to stick. Holding an illegal weapon, threatening to kill his family, stolen TV's, wrecked OCS cruiser's, cheating on wife with co-worker, underage problems in Hamilton ....need I say more? WHY WHY WHY, is this guy still walking around a free man????

Forgot to add ..impersonation of a police office BEFORE he was a police officer. Impersonated the real Dan Herman a NH cop.

And he was fired from OCS, not UPD ...for lying about bashing his cruiser into a person garage door.
