WH officer Berger resigns

A full-time West Homestead officer has resigned following investigation of a theft involving the officer's weapon.

Authorities said that, on Jan 6, Officer Gerald Berger was at a building along Forest Avenue known to be used as a club when his gun allegedly was stolen by a West Mifflin man inside the building.

Others inside the building were able to locate the man and retrieve the weapon.

The suspect reportedly was beaten and had to be hospitalized as a result.

West Homestead Mayor John Dindak said Berger, who was suspended with pay following the incident, resigned Feb 1.

Berger was being investigated by the Allegheny County police, and no charges were filed, Dindak said.

Berger served on the borough force for nine years, the past three full-time.

Dindak said the resignation was a "mutual break," and that Berger is pursuing other interest.
