Private Detective, Franklin County Deputy Clerk Named in Drug Investigation

Was confidential police information leaked to a now convicted drug dealer by someone within the Franklin County court system?

That’s according to information shared with authorities that puts an employee under the microscope in the serious drug investigation.

Franklin County Deputies made a significant drug bust at the home of Patrick Stipes back in April.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

They found two and a half pounds of pot worth more than $16,000 dollars and an arsenal of guns.

The more disturbing discovery was a piece of paper with a confidential list of Frankfort police officers’ names and cruisers they were assigned to drive.

“It was an officer safety issue that was very important when we originally found that to find out where that document came from,” Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton said.

Stipes plead guilty to drug charges and in an affidavit named the source disclosed to be William McGaughey.

McGaughey is a deputy clerk in the Franklin County Circuit Clerk’s Office.

Sheriff Melton said there shouldn’t be any reason for a clerk to give this information to anyone in the public.

Authorities said a search of McGaughey’s Frankfort home uncovered several items including a baggie with suspected cocaine residue, marijuana and marijuana scales.

McGaughey lives across the street from where Stipes lived.

When asked if this investigation is over, Melton said this is just the beginning.

McGaughey continues to work at the circuit clerk’s office. He has not been charged in this investigation.

Fraud Investigation Georgetown Police Warn of Possible Scam

Police in Scott County have put out an alert about a possible police charity scam.

Georgetown Police said people in the area have received calls from someone asking for donations to benefit members of the police community.

The caller is reportedly from the National Police and Trooper Association.

“They went through a pretty significant spiel that the donations go to law enforcement training, families of law enforcement officers or troopers that are killed in the line of duty,” Georgetown Police Department Captain Robert Swanigan said.

http://liarcatchers.com/fraud_investigation.html

Typos on the organization’s website sent out a red flag and police learned people who’ve claimed to raise money for the charity, the non-profit it’s registered to, have gotten in trouble in the past.

The non-profit is the International Union of Police Associations based in Florida.

According to most recent IRS documents, the non-profit received revenue of more than $12 million but only about $47,000 went to charities.

“One of the big problems with fundraising that people do not understand is it does require a fair amount of overhead,” Rich Roberts of the International Union of Police Associations said.

According to those same documents, more than $12 million in overhead.

“People are free to donate their money wherever they want to spend it obviously, but when we see like this happening we want to get the word out,” Capt. Swanigan said.

Donate if you wish, but police warn less than 1 percent of a group’s revenue isn’t a lot of charity.
