Sheriff Jerry Greene would not say what the investigation into Chief Vince D'Egidio is about

NEW MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – New Middletown administrators have requested the Mahoning County Sheriff’s Office investigate the village’s police chief.

Sheriff Jerry Greene would not say what the investigation into Chief Vince D’Egidio is about.

Greene said they’ve already started the investigation.

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office said its Bureau of Criminal Investigation was requested to help with the investigation into D’Egidio.

We contacted New Middletown Mayor Harry Kale, who had no comment.

We also tried contacting D’Egidio, who hasn’t gotten back to us.

The administration building, which houses the police station, was dark and the doors were locked Monday evening.

D’Egidio has been with the department since 1981 and serves — or has served — on several of the county’s various task forces.
