Terminated firefighter enters plea in stolen data case

Walt Buteau reports:

A terminated veteran East Greenwich firefighter pleaded no contest in a case involving missing data used to repair and maintain the emergency alarm system that protects town-owned buildings and commercial property, the Target 12 Investigators have learned.

Robert Warner, 43, of Warwick, entered the plea in Kent County Court on Tuesday to an amended misdemeanor charge, according to Attorney General Public Information Officer Kristy dosReis.

DosReis said Warner returned the missing data and reimbursed $1,160 the town “spent trying to recover the files.”
