The investigation into an incident involving the alleged illegal use of a Jet Ski by personnel from the Stutsman County Sheriff’s Office is likely to move forward next week, according to Chad Kaiser, Stutsman County sheriff.
Kaiser said an investigator from the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigations is scheduled to be in town to question those involved next week.
The Stutsman County Sheriff’s Office and Jamestown Police Department asked BCI to look into whether individuals were attempting to intimidate law enforcement officers when an anonymous report was made to the KVLY news hotline alleging that a photograph showed a sheriff’s deputy and the son of the sheriff using a county-owned jet ski. The report aired by KVLY on Nov. 9, did say the allegations of improper use of county property were false. Stutsman County does not own a jet ski and the photo was later proven to show the Jet Ski was owned by a relative of the sheriff.
“We’re hoping we have results in less than a month,” Kaiser said. “We need to know what has been found so we can get on with an internal investigation.”
