What a crock of crap this sounds like! Darren Phillps has given plenty of time and energy and put his life on the line for many years with this police department and now it sounds like this new sheriff is lookin to take out the old regime any way he can! There is much more here than meets the eye.. and I bet there's a beam in Sheriff Moody's eye!!!

"""Phillips, 36, of High Splendor Road, is accused of stealing a body-armor vest sometime between June and December of 2006, an arrest warrant states."""

They can't even keep up with their inventory--that is 7 months with no accountability. Is this officer just being singled out?
I wish AC-T would put a little more wording into their 'articles'.

I could see wanting the body armor living in Ashville with all the shootings. City council has done a "bang" up job controlling crime. Dumbasses are more worried about stealing more land to be brought into asheville that taking care of what they got.

Why is everyone wanting to blame the Sheriff??? Darrin did it and he got caught! Blame him! I wouldn't want someone STEALING from me either!!!
As far as I am concerned he is cleaning house! Get rid of the bad ones and bring us someone who is worth a shit!!!

From what I understand, Darrin admitted to all of it. The drugs and everything. I think they have pretty solid proof that he was doing drugs on the job.

Stolen between June and December 2006. Moody wans't even in office then. Moody had an inventory taken as soon as he took office. Sometimes investigations take time to solve. He cleaned house as soon as he took office - no explinations why.

The facts will all come out soon enough.

I also want to know if the vest was usable or if it was expired. An expired vest isn't worth anything and should not be re-issued. Makes me wonder. Not that it would make it right if he stole it, but it would be worthless to anyone if out of date.
