PAGELAND, S.C. — A Pageland police chief and captain are accused of breaking into a fellow officer’s home while he was away in an attempt to reprimand him for missing work.
Officer Brandon Roberts filed a report saying that Police Chief Greg Greenlee and Capt. Dean Short broke into his home, intimidating him for missing work, WCNC reported.
Roberts was scheduled for duty Monday, but attended a family function instead. He received several missed calls from Greenlee and learned the duo was waiting for him at his home.
When he arrived home, multiple items, including a family photo album, a hung cross and a wedding cup, were on the floor. His police radio and utility belt were missing as well, the report states.
After he was reprimanded for missing work, Greenlee and Short gave him back his gear. Roberts was told to “get your ass to work.” According to the report, Greenlee asked Roberts to also write an essay about “why he wants to be a Pageland police officer.”
An investigation is ongoing.
