Misdemeanor charges for three city workers dismissed

CUMBERLAND — The three city employees who were indicted by the Allegany County grand jury on misdemeanor theft charges in March will not go to trial, according to State’s Attorney Michael Twigg.

The cases of Rodney Long and Troy Zembower were placed on the stet docket Tuesday. This is neither a finding of guilt nor innocence but a continuance of the case without a trial. The case of John Chapman was dismissed Tuesday.

The three cases involved former city employees of the Public Works Department. The decision to resolve these cases prior to trial was based upon the fact that the matters are being handled administratively by the city, Twigg’s office said.

Chapman was charged with one count each of theft less than $1,000 and conspiracy to commit theft less than $1,000. The case involved unauthorized use of $23.05 of Freon gas and the collection of $247 from the sale of city scrap metal. Chapman was represented by attorney Robert Alderson.

 Long was charged with one count of misdemeanor theft less than $1,000, involving the unauthorized retention of $123.50 from the sale of city scrap metal. He was represented by attorney G.V. McKinley.

 Zembower was charged with the same offense for the same amount. He was represented by attorney Sean P. Gallagher.

The cases were investigated by Maryland State Police and the C3I Unit.

Fred Voss, deputy state’s attorney, resolved the matters for the state.
