Responsible deputy fails to report damage to vehicle


Case Number: 
02-049

On Friday, July 12, 2002, Montgomery County Service Technician Dave Stump was performing service on Sheriffs Office vehicle #8559. While performing the service, Technician Stump discovered the front portion of the car's undercarriage, fan, and fan shroud was damaged. Deputy Talmadge Crosby is the deputy primarily assigned to operate vehicle #8559.

Sergeant Anderson investigated this complaint by interviewing Deputy Crosby, Fleet Manager Tom Mundey, Montgomery County Sheriff's Office Volunteer Jerry Wilson, and Montgomery County Service Technician Dave Stump. Sergeant Anderson's investigation shows that the allegation does not have merit concerning Deputy Talmadge.

Sergeant Anderson's investigation shows that vehicle #8559 was serviced on April l2, 2002, without any damage to the undercarriage being noticed. The damage was discovered during the next service on July 12, 2002. Sergeant Anderson's investigation shows that although Deputy Crosby is the primary operator of vehicle #8559, there were five times between April2, 2002 and July 12, 2002 that the car was driven by someone other than Deputy Crosby. Further, Sergeant Anderson was unable to determine who drove the car on those occasions.
