Pleasantville’s public works director has been charged with official misconduct for allegedly using his city credit card for a personal purchase.
Robert Oglesby used the card to buy less than $200 in paneling from the Home Depot, which he then used for himself, according to the charges signed earlier this month.
No official announcement was made when Oglesby was charged, and a date for his first appearance already passed, according to the complaint, which was released to The Press of Atlantic City on Monday.
Acting Atlantic County Prosecutor Jim McClain has no comment at this time, spokesman Jay McKeen said.
Oglesby was put on paid leave in September due to the investigation, Mayor Jesse Tweedle confirmed at the time. Since he is now charged, he will no longer be paid.
Tweedle did not immediately return a call seeking comment Monday evening.
Oglesby has worked for the city for 16 years.
The allegation stems from a February 2013 incident, according to the charges.
Oglesby’s brother, Charles, is a former Pleasantville police detective. He was forced to forfeit his job in 2010 under a plea deal stemming from an official misconduct charge. Charles Oglesby was accused of stealing from a suspect during an investigation in 2007, then falsifying the report to cover it up.
Under the plea agreement, he admitted no criminal wrongdoing and served no jail time.
