Two Longview Officers Leave Amid Allegations Of Wrong Doing

Two Longview police officers leave the department amid allegations of wrong doing.

Robert Adams worked at Longview High School as a resource officer and head of the school's Crimestoppers program for 9 years. Back in April, Adams' sergeant allegedly found money missing from the Crimestopper's account.

Before the internal investigation could be completed Adams resigned from the police department.

"During this time officer Adams rendered his resignation and left the department about the same time we felt we had enough for an internal investigation. With him leaving the department it's now been turned into a criminal investigation," says Chief J.B. McCaleb.

No word on when the criminal investigation involving officer Robert Adams will be complete.

A second officer, Dale Wilmeth, was fired last month after an internal investigation. The details of that investigation could not be disclosed because Wilmeth is appealing the decision.
