When you steal enough money from treasure beach camp ground and treat people like shit - you and you family get what they deserve !

Let it begin! I hope they dig into everyone of the deputies that have been around for a while. From helping dope dealers in their towns to gambling. Seizures missing total sums. You name it. These deputies have been racking it in.

Sheriff Lewis promoted him and backed him.

Its been about 5 years since he was a cop. He was in charge of purchasing of Wicomico county after Fred Harris retired because of the landfill caper and was in charge of purchasing for the sheriffs dept for years before that.Never really cared for him loud and nasty at times and had a bad case of L.M.S. little man syndrome.

Look into why he left county employment

Yes, he is the husband of Donna Elliott.

Sharon Morris lobbied Rick Pollitt to bring him in to the executive's office as Purchasing agent. The job was so far above his abilities but so is Morris's. She didn't know any better apparently, she is nothing more than a bank teller. He couldn't even write a complete sentence. He was on sick leave almost the whole time. Finally he was either fired or retired but not before he had worked the County on many fronts; sick leave, overtime and his ranking that he should never have received. That was thanks to Hunter Nelms. Thankfully he is no longer employed at the taxpayers expense. I feel really sorry for the last place he worked. Apparently though they are willing to make him pay for his thievery unlike a government like Wicomico County. Good riddance Elliott.

Years ago I really liked Mike Elliot that is until I came to know just exactly how he abused his badge. Did work for him and he tried to screw us out of the money he owed us! He went as far to make demands by saying "do you know who I am" and it is without saying I knew him and knew him well. I always thought he was an upstanding person until then. Personally I believe he had some sort of breakdown and was forced to leave the sheriffs department which I for one am glad he is not affiliated with them. The old saying what goes around comes around seems to be biting him back now. Living the lavish lifestyle he has been living has finally come to an end roads maybe now he'll come down off of his high horses?

Anonymous said...

He backs all his deputies. They're all in it together. This good ol boy connection needs to be broken up.

Elliott has deserved this for many years. He is a loser and has ridden on the coattails of the taxpayers for the last 20 plus years. I feel sorry for his family. They have to be hurting. I hope they will recognize what he is and move on. They don't deserve to pay the penalty for his behavior.

Anonymous said...

He has been living a very lavish lifestyle and finally it has ended. Everyone knew he couldn't be making the dollars he was spending.

Anonymous said...

Mike presented himself as over qualified but all those who worked with him knew better. I question how he stayed and got promoted over and over. He was always sick and on some kind of leave.

Anonymous said...

Wait, are you talking about Mike Elliott, or the guy who replaced him at the sheriff's office?

Anonymous said...

10:56 - He did not back all of his deputies. They were not his. He got promoted over and over because he kissed butt. He was a yes man. I feel for his family because they do not deserve this.

Dave said...

Lavish lifestyle? Donna is a RN, so together they were making over 100k. That's how they lived well....they earned it. I'm not trying to make any excuses, but I guess you all have forgotten how devastated Donna & Mike were 7 or 8 years ago when their son was killed on Snow Hill Rd. where the Rte 13 Bypass goes over. We shouldn't be judging others....especially when we don't know the circumstances.

Mmm , the tide has turned in the U.S. , guilty until proven innocent .

He was so devastated ? That's why he was having an affair with more woman then most men get in a year ! All the foreign girls at the beach were mikes toys for the past 2 years !!! That's how he repays his wife! And believe me she isn't what she appears on the surface either !!!

I didn't know any of this till this post but if he has done all this and gotten away with it so long, I don't understand how somebody long before now hasn't squealed and it wasn't heard by the public as well as by Sheriff Lewis, the SPD and the States Attorney Office. Maybe we need an investigation into all the ones he has worked for and with.

He's not a cop.

Mike hasn't been a deputy sheriff for years. He's had a few other jobs since then. But when he was at the Sheriffs Office, he held a middle managemt position in which a checks and balance system was in place. Any money he was in charge of could not be misappropriated. The fact that he's s former deputy has nothing to do with what he's accused of now. There is no need to drag the good name of Sheriff Lewis and his office through the mud. There is no relevance to Mike Elliott being a former deputy. As to the fact that Sheriff Lewis promoted him, yes he did. Mike held a position of leadership there. A series of unfortunate events occurred which led to him leaving the Sheriffs office. But while he was there, he performed his job correctly. it is very unfortunate that this incident has shed a negative light on the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office. The headline could have just as well said "Former English's Employee arrested and being extradited to Delaware".

Guess that explains his wife's Facebook posts always living it up with him, his daughter, and son-in-law! If we all had extra funds, we'd be able to live lavishly as well.

This is another sad chapter in Donna's life. I wish her strength to do what she needs to do.

Anonymous said...

Likely the reason Elliott working at the sheriffs office was mentioned is he was there for years, probably 20 plus. The other reason is we expect officers of the law to be honest. It's a sour apple here.

Anonymous said...

I don't care what some of you say. Mike and Donna Elliott have been my friends for decades. I went to church with them and their children. He and Donna have been fine people. I support my friends! He was a good deputy. She was a great nurse and helped my son while in the hospital. They have both helped countless others in our community for years!!! So ease up on your attacks!

Anyone who is not concerned about his handling of monies on a county level is just stupid. Yes there were many opportunities for theft. Who knows where all the grant money went. Elliott also tweaked the pay scale to help himself and a couple of his buddies. The guy had no integrity. I am sorry for Donna and his children they had nothing to do with this.

The Elliott's are friends with and live in the same neighborhood as three troopers a chief of police and several attorneys, two teachers. So how does this make a good old boy system. I think Kevin Boith and his wife are stirring some crap because he got fired twice by the sheriffs office.

Same with the replacement.

Good. It is time for a reckoning around that place. Sure, he might not have been a deputy when this theft occurred, but the command there is certainly due for thier comeuppance.

1:14... You sound like you have a bigger problem with the replacement than Elliott himself. The issue here is Elliott not anyone else. What's the deal? What did he/she ever do? Or are you just a disgruntled employee?

Making they were just stealing to keep up with "the Jones'"!!!

Living around attorneys, etc. She is a nurse and he "runs a campground". Come on now, it is hard to keep up with lifestyle of attorneys and others.

There is motive right there!! They wants to keep up with their friends!!

Thank you 8:41 pm. We now know why he stole!!!!!!! Apparently, there are more charges to come real soon!!!

I was told it could exceed $250,000.00

He hadn't worked there that long, how could there have been $250,000 missing without the park going bankrupt?

there is also alot of equipment there including RV's that he could of stole and sold...
That's a very popular and nice campground.

A year is nothing to steal $250,000 or more. Quite possible!!!


who knows.....time will tell!

How comes there are no 'Like' buttons on this feed... I might have gotten carpal tunnel from liking everything!! Although speculation and some stretches, it is good to say Karma has been swift and just. I wonder if he has enough lawyers for all of this 'slander' which he prided himself on using a hundred times last year and even joked that he has a team of lawyers and law enforcement at his beckoning call. He even stated multiple times how many people he has had arrested and the tag line was always 'well if you don't like, you can move out today'. To me, just being a stand-up person with integrity and a focus on doing his job, would have kept the campground in great shape and he wouldn't have lost 250 seasonals in just 18 months!!

12:52 You certainly sound like you know first handed the same Elliott I know. Glad you feel Karma has arrived and the action will be swift. Do you know if he has been taken to DE yet?

Well aren’t the good people of Salisbury so terribly self-righteous? I’m a “come here” not a “from here” and this is the part of Salisbury I despise. No one has anything better to do than anonymously sit behind a computer and bash friends/neighbors/former co-workers. I don’t know Mike. I know Donna. I feel terrible that anyone is being subjected to this kind of nasty gossip. They live in a lovely neighborhood and have lovely friends, so what? Those are some of the nicest people I have ever met. Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? And all of you throwing around the whole “karma is a B” and so on…just how do you think karma will repay all of your ugly comments posted here? Sure hope there are no skeletons in your closet, or a coat rack that someone thinks is a skeleton and posts all over the internet that “ NO, it’s a skeleton!” Mike is someone’s child, father, husband, etc. Let’s remember how you would feel if this was someone you loved. Prayers to those hurting over this, and may there be truth and peace for all involved.

You apparently don't know what you are talking about because Mike Lewis does NOT back all his deputies! If Mike believed in hard work getting you promoted he wouldn't have some of dumbasses he has in top ranks right now collecting their salaries for making someone's schedule or writing letters!! He is hardly there so he doesn't know what's going on!

Anonymous said...

11:29 you must work for the office, checks and balances are in place many times but it doesn't mean the people doing the "checks" were doing their job or maybe they were in on it. He was a joke at the sheriff's office and he is still a joke now! He was a complete idiot walking around with his chest poked out.

Anonymous said...

I agree with you joe - and I haven't sent anything into this blog .... However mike has treated so many people poorly . Bragged about stealing and cheating and people are fed up. Is t that the purpose of a blog like this?? Why is everyone so afraid of mike ? He is horrible to people .

Anonymous said...

This is so "typical"!! There are people who are in leadership rolls "ABUSE" their power. It is written in many articles, and experienced in all of our lives....that when people stay in positions too long they can get the "higher than thou" complex and start abusing their power. The only way that this is AVOIDED is CHECKS and BALANCES are in place.

Mike Elliott's thoughts was that "he was a mighty power" which he abused while he was in law enforcement. He then transferred and worked for Rick Pollitt. For many many months (approx. 9-10 months) he never showed up to work for the City and he still got paid. Why did Salisbury City allow this?

Taxpayers need to be calling Salisbury City Government and inquire about this. He essentially stole from the city, Where do any human being work and doesn't show up to work for many, many months and still get a pay check????

Horrific!!!!!!!!!

People can be rest assured of this....

Delaware State Police would not "trump up charges" if there was solid evidence that Mr. Elliott stole a huge amount of money.

Let alone, they had him "extradited" back to Delaware which is expensive to do.

10:08 it wasn't the city. It was Wicomico County where he worked.

Joe I do not get all these people bashing the Sheriff's Office and Sheriff Lewis. Mike Elliott has been gone for over six years. The sad fact is Elliott was never the same after his lost his son. There is absolutely no excuse for what the man did, but anyone who spent five minutes with him knew he was not right. I think he went over the edge and never came back. the man lost his way big time and now he will have to pay. Trashing his wife and kids is cowardly. Trust me I am no fan of Elliott he screwed all lot of deputies over in his day. I just think you have to be a bit of a puss to throw his wife and family under the bus. The only thing I can say is don't drop the soap tater !!!

Anonymous said...

Elliott screwed up. Simple. It's not the sheriff's office fault. It is definitely not the fault of Lewis or the admin that has replaced him. Leave them out of this unless you have something to say about their performance and/or actions. Some people are so quick to criticize but have no actual facts. Leave his family out as well.

Anonymous said...

He was the same guy when he worked at WCSO. Bad person and bad boss. He did a poor job, and should never have been promoted all of those times. Both recent admins made mistakes with upper promotions.

I worked for this jerk for one season and I can tell you, nothing he did made sense to any of us. Things like taking cash deposits home with him so he "wouldn't be interrupted". Cameras were everywhere at the office...but nobody was observing him at home. (hmmmm)The office manager was always in tears and behind closed doors, telling staff to stay out. She turned down multiple offers from staff to help her with paperwork. (hmmmm) In hindsight, I don't think Mike was stealing without help. I can tell you, not one employee or customer liked him because he treated everyone like crap. He even said one day, "I think I might have to start carrying (his gun)"! Nutso guy! I heard he's had one court appearance...anybody have an update?
