Windham Town Board silent on police raid

Mar 28, 2014 8:43 am
Michael Ryan is reporting in The Daily Mail the uncertainty continues in Windham over a state police raid of town hall last week. The Windham Town Board met Thurs., Mar. 27, but the subject of the Bureau of Criminal Investigation team's seizure of town computer equipment was not raised during the public meeting. The board put on hold the resignation of Deputy Town Supervisor Edward D. Shanley, reportedly submitted Fri., Mar. 21, shortly after the raid. It is not known if there was a connection between the pending resignation and the police action. Shanley was appointed deputy to Supervisor Stacy Post in January. A state trooper was present for most of the Town Board meeting, Thursday night. The trooper was dispatched as a precautionary measure, at the town's request. There was a concern emotions might run high, Ryan writes. Neither the state police or Greene County Acting District Attorney Charles Bucca have released details on the scope of the investigation, a time frame for when the probe might end, or when the findings will be made public.
