I-Team: State police investigating Tiverton employee

Meeting in executive session Monday night, the Tiverton Town Council discussed allegations against a long time town employee.

Town officials did not identify the worker or specify the complaints.

However, Rhode Island State Police confirm they are investigating the allegations against the employee.

NBC 10 I-Team Reporter Parker Gavigan has learned town maintenance manager Robert Martin is the target of the investigation.

The I-Team has been investigating Martin for two months after receiving information he often worked on his personal property while he was supposed to be working for the town.

Martin has denied any wrong doing.

An extended report into Martin is scheduled to air on NBC 10 at 6 p.m. Thursday.
