I am confused. Wasn't this chap back working in his job for the county? I see nothing in the release that says he was relieved of his duties. Was he?

just saw on his public facebook page where he was no longer working for Nelson County. He said "not by his choice". REALLY? Last I checked, when you steal, literally knowingly take something that was NOT given to you, it was by your choice. Had he been given this item...that would be a different story.

I'm confused, too. There is nothing among all the trash on TV that could possibly be worth the risk of losing your job or going to jail over. And then to post it on facebook? Maybe this'll end up on "World's Dumbest Criminals"

Facebook has become a favorite tool of investigative and law enforcement because people just can't help telling on themselves.

It should or could be noted he gave a lot of time to that county, not saying what was done was right. Its just makes one wonder why
