RI State Police arrest Tiverton Police Sergeatn Munroe

Tiverton police sergeant William Munroe was arrested on 14 counts of larceny by the Rhode Island State Police on Wednesday morning following a month-long investigation.

It is alleged that Munroe was stealing gasoline from the Town of Tiverton. 

The Investigation

During the month of October, Tiverton Police Chief Patrick Jones learned that one of his sworn members was allegedly stealing gasoline from the Town of Tiverton.

Jones requested the assistance of the Rhode Island State Police to investigate these allegations.

Members of the Rhode Island State Police Special Investigations Unit initiated an investigation, and after conducting multiple surveillances, it was confirmed that Sergeant Munroe, a sworn law enforcement officer for the Town of Tiverton, has been stealing gasoline from the Town.

Members of the Special Investigations Unit saw Sergeant Munroe fueling his marked police cruiser multiple times at the town gasoline pumps, located at 50 Industrial Way, Tiverton.  Detectives saw that in addition to putting gasoline in his cruiser, he also would often fill a large gasoline container and take it to his personal vehicle that was parked in the parking lot of the Tiverton Police Station located at 20 Industrial Way. 

Sergeant Munroe would then allegedly pour the gasoline from the container into the gas tank of his personal vehicle, utilizing the gasoline for his own personal use.

Sergeant Munroe was taken into custody early Wednesday morning at the Tiverton Police Department without incident.

He was transported to State Police Headquarters, where he was processed.
