In a recent incident in Camden County, MO, a Road and Bridge supervisor faced termination over alleged fuel theft. County leaders launched an internal investigation upon detecting a potential issue and discovered that the problem may have persisted for several years. The implicated supervisor was placed on administrative leave, internally investigated, and subsequently terminated for policy violations.
Notably, the sheriff’s department has not pressed criminal charges in this case. County leaders have acknowledged the need for change in fuel management practices to prevent future incidents. They aim to enhance procedures and instill greater accountability within the Road and Bridge department.
