State agents raid Westmoreland County sheriff's office(A republicon) after locksmith opens door

The attorney general last month charged Held, 44, of Hempfield, with three criminal offenses related to public corruption allegations. Investigators contend Held forced deputies and office staff to perform political chores, specifically to organize and collect items for campaign fundraisers, while in uniform and on the job.

A two-term Republican who took office in 2012, Held faces one felony count of conflict of interest and two misdemeanor charges of theft for using county resources for political purposes.

A retired sergeant and an active sergeant testified at a preliminary hearing last week that Held ordered them and other staffers to perform campaign chores on his behalf while on duty . The case was held over for court. No trial date has been set.
