According to a release from LPSO spokeswoman Lori Steele, a complaint was received regarding the allegations against LeMaire.
“Through investigation, we have found an unauthorized online purchase from Home Depot on a washing machine,” the release said. “The subject used the town’s Tax ID # (sic) – avoiding having to pay sales taxes. That washing machine was located at the Alderman’s home for personal use.”
