NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The state comptroller's office says the former police chief of Monterey kept a city-owned bulldozer on his property. The report also said the chief and the town's former mayor signed a back-dated lease agreement for the machine after citizens questioned why it was there.
The report from the special investigations unit was made public by the comptroller's office Wednesday and also stated investigators also found that town officials improperly used a vehicle seized by law enforcement and kept an abandoned vehicle they were required by law to sell at public auction.
WTVF-TV (http://bit.ly/15WW2dg ) first reported on the story in March. A Putnam County grand jury later declined to indict.
The office of the city's attorney, Michael O'Mara, said he was in deposition Wednesday and was not available for comment.
