SEEKONK, M.A. (WLNE) – A retired Seekonk police lieutenant has been charged with larceny and five counts of public employee standards violations.

David Dyson, of Rehoboth, has been charged with one count of larceny over $250 and five counts of Public Employee Standards of Conduct violations.

According to a Bristol County DA’s spokesman, the charges stem from incidents between March 2016 and October 2017 where it’s alleged that Dyson misrepresented the amount of time he worked.

Dyson is alleged to have made a false claim for payment, and was overcompensated for detail hours on five separate occasions during that time period totaling over $1,000.

An arraignment has been set for Dyson on May 1 in the Taunton District Court.
