GILBERTON, Pa. - A Schuylkill County police force, made famous for what its chief was doing off-the-clock, will soon be no more.
The Gilberton Borough Council says it will begin to dismantle its police department.
The announcement comes a week after former Gilberton Police Chief-- and sole member of the force-- Mark Kessler signed a settlement agreement with the borough.
Kessler was suspended last July for using borough weapons in graphic YouTube videos.
Now the council says State Police will patrol the area.
Six suspects have been identified in the attack, but only three have been arrested and charged so far.Read More »
