GLOUCESTER (AP) -- Four of the seven members of the Gloucester County Board of Supervisors have been indicted for allegedly conducting public business in secret.
Supervisors Teresa Altemus, Michelle Ressler, Robert "Bobby" Crewe and Gregory Woodard were indicted Tuesday on a total of 12 misdemeanors.
A special grand jury report says the four conspired to seize control of the board and hired an interim county administrator without permission.
The report also says they enlisted Sheriff Steve Gentry to disable network accounts and seize the computers of the county administrator and attorney after they were terminated at a board meeting. Gentry was indicted on one misdemeanor count of unlawful warrantless search.
Woodard and Gentry both say they did nothing wrong. Altemus, Ressler and Crewe couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
