Former Sheriff's Lieutenant Charged With Theft, Obstruction

Former Lt. Sarah Massa is accused of taking her grandmother's painkillers. Massa has resigned from the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department.

A former Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department lieutenant has been charged with misdemeanor theft and misdemeanor obstructing an officer.  The charges were filed against Sarah L. Massa, 36, of Mukwonago, on Tuesday in Waukesha County Circuit Court.

Massa is accused of taking her grandmother’s painkillers while her grandmother was nearing the end of her life, according to WISN 12 News. Massa’s grandfather thought Massa may have had back pain, according to the report.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice was investigating Massa, who resigned from the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department. Massa’s husband, former Waukesha police officer Chris Massa, also resigned from his position after the investigation into Sarah Massa showed Chris Massa was sexting his wife while on duty at the Waukesha Police Department.

The Waukesha Police Department has said Chris Massa was only under an internal investigation – not a criminal investigation – when he resigned from the police department. Chris Massa faced potential discipline in the allegations – discipline that could have resulted in his termination, according to Waukesha Police Chief Russell Jack.

Waukesha Girl....Chris would be called a son-in-law, not grandson. Im not going to be back on here until the end of this case, I think. You'll eventually hear the whole true story. The grandmother was on her death bed l=and it was her medication that was stolen. Walk in the shoes of the people who had to deal with that, then you can tell me how it is.
