Demanding to know where it got the notion, as reported by the TL “it was widely reported that certain employees admitted they had stolen fuel, some by putting it in portable containers, then later transferring it to their personal vehicles.”
The Times Leader responded to the detectives questions with “hey it was printed by Terri well over a year ago when she interviewed a former city purchasing agent who told the reporter what he heard from them, "Trimble was advised by investigators that people other than the employee he spoke to had also admitted taking fuel, some by filling up portable gasoline tanks that they then dispensed into personal vehicles, he said.". Perhaps you should try interviewing him yet again.” The paper cannot be held accountable for the incompetence of Luzerne County should have been their response.
In the editoral the paper also pointed out “Seemingly, Salavantis’ most recent statement indicates the DA’s Office either isn’t approaching this case sincerely or it needs to renew its newspaper subscription.” Perhaps the newspaper should send a complimentary copy to the Child in charge over there, not that she can read, or recognize a thief on a Billboard!
