Former Merriam City Official Pleads Guilty to Misconduct

KSAL StaffMay 19, 2016

A fired suburban Kansas City public works director has pleaded guilty to stealing fuel.

Sixty-one-year-old Randall Carroll admitted Thursday in Johnson County District Court to a felony count of official misconduct. The Kansas City Star reports that a second charge of theft was dismissed as part of the plea.

The Olathe man worked for the city of Merriam for 34 years before he was fired last September after the crimes were discovered. Court documents say the thefts began in October 2014.

Prosecutors say other public works employees became suspicious when they noticed fuel missing from a large tank. A camera captured Carroll repeatedly putting gas from the tank in his personal vehicle. He also was seen erasing tire tracks from his vehicle.

Sentencing is set for July 11.
