The Journal News August 19, 2015 “Mayor Demeza Delhomme and Building Inspector Walter Booker are at odds again–with the mayor this time pointing fingers about the district attorney’s seizure of Booker’s computer many months ago.
Delhomme recounted, for the first time, how investigators from the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office apparently arrived at Village Hall sometime before Booker’s suspension and seized Booker’s computer. The exact date of that raid was unclear.
“It got seized a long time ago,” Delhomme said. “That’s the untold story.”
Booker blamed the mayor for the computer’s seizure.
“He offered it to them,” Booker said. “Apparently, somebody is looking for something that doesn’t exist.”
Both Delhomme and Booker maintain they were never told the reason for the raid or why the computer was taken.
The district attorney’s office did not respond to a call seeking comment on the situation.
Spring Valley has been faulted by state and county officials for failing to comply with minimum standards regarding using its code-enforcement powers.” Read the complete story here.
