In Seekonk a former cop gets busted

Retired Seekonk Police Lieutenant David Dyson, of Rehoboth, has been charged out of the Taunton District Court with one count of Larceny Over $250 by Single Scheme and five counts of Public Employee Standards of Conduct Violations.  


A summons arraignment for the aforementioned charges has been scheduled for May 1, 2019 in the Taunton District Court.


The charges stem from incidents arising between March 2016 and October 2017 where it is alleged that then Lieutenant Dyson misrepresented the amount of time he worked on detail projects.


It is alleged that Lieutenant Dyson made a false claim for payment, and was overcompensated, for detail hours on five separate occasions during this time period totaling just over $1,000.00.  


This matter was investigated by the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office.
