An investigation triggered by a tip has cost a Public Safety Sgt. his job. Frederick Milton Jr. was a highly decorated 11 year veteran of the force and a body builder.
Chief Jeff Hadley brought in the WEMET drug team to investigate claims that some officers were using illegally obtained steroids and Human growth hormones. Milton was given a chance to resign before the Department’s internal investigation reached a conclusion on sanctions. They say it didn’t affect his job performance and they had no citizen complaints.
A Paw Paw Police officer and body builder, Robert Kusmack, has reportedly been suspended without pay as a result of the investigation. Chief Jeff Hadley says in a press release that they view such actions as a betrayal of the public trust, and not reflective of the 300 people who work in the department. Hadley says any criminal charges would be up to the WEMET Drug team to decide.
