The Allegheny County District Attorney's Office announced on Wednesday that it found no wrongdoing in two complaints filed against the former Monroeville police chief.

The complaints against Doug Cole were deemed undeserving of prosecution, according to a letter dated July 3 to Monroeville officials from Dennis Logan, chief of investigations for the DA's office.

Monroeville municipal manager Lynette McKinney said both complaints in April first were brought to her attention by police Chief Steve Pascarella.

One complaint accused Cole of purchasing radio transmitters for the fire department with funds reserved for the police department. The other complaint accused him of misusing 10 police dashboard cameras purchased with grant money.

DA detectives determined there was no criminal wrongdoing, the letter stated.

Cole, a sergeant in the department, was not available for comment.
