Westmoreland County, Pa. – According to online County Prison Inmate information and media reports, suspended Leechburg Police Chief Mike Diebold is currently in the Westmoreland County Jail. The exact nature of the current state of affairs is unknown, however more information is expected to be released this afternoon.

No new charges have been filed against Diebold. Diebold is accused of unlawful contact with a minor after he allegedly solicited sex from a 14 year-old female online. That female was an agent for the state Attorney General’s Office predator task force.

Diebold’s estranged wire Danielle Reinke Diebold said through additional media reports the arrest was likely a huge misunderstanding.
