Martins Ferry Police Chief - Barry Carpenter

Carpenter was charged with two felony counts of burglary, one count of receiving stolen property, one count of theft in office, one count of tampering with evidence and one count of unauthorized use of telecommunications property. If convicted on all counts, the defendant faces up to 21.5 years in prison and fines totalling $45,000.

He entered innocent pleas to all charges and was released on his own recognizance. Belmont County Common Pleas Court Judge John Solovan set a status conference for Aug. 21, and a trial date has been set for Oct. 20.

Bridgeport Police Chief - Chad Dojack

Charges of complicity to burglary, one a second-degree felony and one a third-degree felony, and a charge of complicity to receiving stolen property were filed against Dojack. He also pleaded innocent to the charges and was released on his own recognizance. If convicted, he faces up to 14.5 years in prison and fines totaling $30,000.

A Nov. 17 trial date was set in Dojack's case.

Bruce Callarik was charged with one count of complicity to receiving stolen property. He faces 18 months in prison and a fine of up to $5,000. He pleaded innocent to the charges and was released on his own recognizance. A Dec. 1 trial date was set.

I am totally impressed that this investigation moved along so expeditiously. considering it took 10 years for New Jersey to break the money laundering, organ stealing group operating in their state. Kudos to Ohio BCI!!

Now Dojack, may just join the rest of the felons in his family. (**Sandy that's for you guys!)

Of course they pleaded innocent. I take it these guys are from your local area? Good for you for sharing the story with us.

Some people just think they are above the law! So many times too in a small town, people will rally behind criminals like this and say thingss like "Oh, he was such a nice guy, etc" Yeah, right, a regular Robin Hood.

I don't think Dojack should've been released from jail...would a anyone else in his situation get to be released--no bail?

You're right, at least it didn't drag on like the modern day Sopranos in New Jersey.

I love when citizens go the extra mile to make this state proud. Go Buckeyes!

There's a lot of dirty cops out there. Very few get caught.
