Former Lemoyne police chief linked to scrap metal sales

Posted: Updated:
LEMOYNE, Pa. (WHTM) - Police are investigating three Lemoyne officials who allegedly kept money from the borough.

According to court documents, former Lemoyne police chief and borough manager Howard Dougherty, maintenance supervisor John Paden and Sewer Department supervisor John O'Neill unlawfully kept money from sales of scrap metal instead of turning the cash over to borough funds.

According to the affidavit, West Shore Regional Police Department was contacted by members of the Lemoyne Borough Council in May regarding concerns about employees not turning in borough funds from the sale of scrap metal.

Investigators learned that multiple cash transactions had occurred at local scrap facilities, primarily Susquehanna Recycling in Harrisburg.

According to police, Paden would require borough employees to go to specific scrap yards that offered cash sales and turn the money from the sales over to Paden.

Police say this had been going on since the 1990's.

On May 27, Paden allegedly told police he split the money from the scrap metal sales with John O'Neill and Howard Dougherty.

At this time, Paden and O'Neill are on administrative leave.
