LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The Lee County Sheriff's Office received a complaint from a former Medstar pilot on September 8th, reporting a possible theft from the county.
The complainant had been recently terminated from Medstar, due to his position being eliminated, but told officers that while he was employed, he received information regarding a fuel theft.
A helicopter with a full tank of fuel had been flown to Avon Park to be painted, but the Director of Maintenence, Greg Schiegner allegedly drained it, saying he now had "free fuel" to take to his farm.
The complainant was able to obtain a receipt from Avon Park, showing that the helicopter had to be refueled to make it back to Lee County after being painted.
The county has not signed a desire to prosecute and, therefore, a criminal investigation into the matter is not taking place.
