Former Versailles chief returns computer

Saturday, July 19, 2014, 12:01 a.m.
 

Versailles officials say the borough's former police chief has returned a computer he was issued for work, averting legal action to compel him to return the equipment.

Borough officials earlier this month authorized the solicitor to file suit against former police Chief William Kruczek, who retired last August, to force him to return the computer.

“It was returned within three days,” said Versailles Solicitor Pat McGrail. “The equipment was returned so I won't be filing a lawsuit.”

Council members authorized the suit at a July 7 meeting saying Kruczek had not responded to requests to return the device.

Council president Emerson Fazekas said he talked to the former chief about returning the computer after the vote and Kruczek then returned it. Fazekas said it would be up the borough's current police chief, Charles Roka, to assess the condition of the device.

Roka confirmed he has the old computer but said the data has not been examined.

“I'm not an expert so I don't know how to forensically examine it,” said Roka, adding that if such an examination is desired, council would have to authorize it.
