Accused inmate trusty also worked with Fremont police
Acting Fremont Police Chief Denny Wood said his department experienced no problems with the trusty when he worked under close supervision at the Fremont Safety Complex.
Many of the details surrounding the incident in East Kingston haven’t been released, but Rockingham County Sheriff Michael Downing confirmed this week that his office was asked by the County Attorney’s Office to investigate a burglary in May at the East Kingston police station.
Jail Superintendent Stephen Church has not returned phone calls this week seeking comment on the trusty incident and the investigation.
“In light of the information that I learned about the East Kingston incident I reviewed with my staff the job performance of the trusty and I noted there were no problems with him,” he said.
According to Wood, the Fremont Police Department suspended use of the program after a police sergeant discovered a trusty in a back room who appeared incoherent, sweaty and lethargic.
The sergeant followed up and believed he was under the influence of heroin, Wood said, but police never determined how he may have accessed the drug. The trusty was transported to the hospital by ambulance.
Following the incident, former Fremont Police Chief Neal Janvrin stopped using trusties, but Wood reinstituted the program after he was appointed acting chief in October.
