On 2 Oct 17 Det. Sgt. Parks met with Chief CW Durham of the Marietta City Fire Department. Chief Durham had encountered some discrepancies with timesheets belonging to Lori L. Dietsch. In making further inquiry it was determined that employees complete their timesheets at which time Chief Durham will sign off/approve them.
On 2 Oct 17 after approving a timesheet belonging to Dietsch, it was learned that what was originally entered as 2 days off when approved had been changed to show her actually working and not using vacation, etc. Upon checking previous timesheets other discrepancies were documented.
Det. Parks met with Ms. Dietsch about the conflicting timesheets. Ms. Dietsch requested an attorney at that time. Lori Lynn Dietsch, age 46, was placed under arrest for tampering with records and transported to the Washington County Jail awaiting an appearance in Marietta Municipal Court.
