[Excerpts] An Onondaga County sheriff's sergeant has resigned amid an investigation into the discovery of $650 worth of town of Clay equipment in his home. Edward Blanch, a Clay police sergeant until the department merged with the Sheriff's Office last year, stepped down two weeks ago, Sheriff Kevin Walsh said Friday. The resignation came shortly after sheriff's deputies were called to his home in Salina on Jan. 20 over a domestic dispute... Blanch's estranged wife, Karen Blanch, asked the deputies what they were going to do about all the stolen town of Clay equipment her husband had in the home... He said sheriff's officials were targeting him because he was a whistle-blower... "This is kind of an excess. It's an attempt to silence me"... [Full article here]

Did Karen call [911?] to report the equipment, OR did deputies come out on a domestic call and while there were told ALSO about the equipment? The article goes on and on about the STUFF but says no more about the domestic.

Did she want safety or the house?
