A Knoxville woman claims in a federal lawsuit filed Monday that Mt. Oliver police Chief Frank Mosesso sexually harassed her during the eight years she was a borough police officer and then stole a resignation letter from her work locker and presented it to council.

Christine Secilia, 36, says she repeatedly complained to council about Mosesso's behavior and contacted the mayor, two council members and the previous solicitor on Dec. 20, 2011, after she found out council accepted her apparent resignation. It wouldn't reinstate her, the lawsuit says.

She is suing the chief and the borough. Mosesso and the borough's current solicitor couldn't immediately be reached.
