Bloomfield Police investigate Thompson for theft

Scott Thompson, Public Works superintendent for Bloomfield, resigned from his role on Tuesday following an investigation and accusations of theft.

Following a month-long investigation by Bloomfield Police Chief Steve Cambron, Public Works Superintendent Scott Thompson resigned from his role Tuesday morning. Cambron said he is currently investigating Thompson under accusations of theft and abuse of his position.

“The investigation revealed that our Public Works Director had been taking money and abusing his office over a period of years,” Cambron said. “This ranges from suspected time card abuse and fraud where he has stated or implied that he was working for the city when he was not.”
