City of Statesboro employee charged with theft

William Calcote

           Police arrested a City of Statesboro employee last week on charges of stealing city property – gasoline and motor vehicle parts.

            Statesboro Police officers charged William Boyd Calcote, 35, Ga. 25, with felony theft by taking government property. He was taken to the Bulloch County Jail, where he was later released  on a $2,000 property bond, according to jail records.

            Statesboro Police Det. Sgt. Thomas Williams said Calcote was charged with one count of  theft by taking for the "continuous theft" of an undisclosed amount of gasoline from the City of Statesboro, as well as a radiator.

            The radiator was " taken from a new city vehicle ... and replaced with an old one," he said.

            Williams said he could not release additional information about the case, which is still under investigation. However, he did say there were no additional arrests anticipated in  the case.

            Statesboro's interim City Manager Tom Combiths said Monday Calcote was fired.

            "The employee was terminated based on the charges of theft of government property," he said.

            Combiths said he was not aware of any other theft incidents regarding city property.

            Calcote worked with the city's natural gas department.
