WOODSTOCK (AP) — A man who had worked for a northern Illinois community for 36 years has been fired after he allegedly made off with a ton of road salt and two snow plow skids valued at a total of $160.
The (Crystal Lake) Northwest Herald (http://bit.ly/1lXhfP0 ) reports officials in Woodstock fired Dale Behm last week, just days after he was charged with felony theft of government property.
City manager Roscoe Stelford says an investigation revealed the salt was taken at about the first of the year, but that he didn't know when the skids were stolen.
After his Feb. 28 arrest, Behm was released from custody the next day on a $1,000 recognizance bond.
A call for comment to a phone number listed to Dale Behm was not immediately returned.
