Honesdale, Wayne County - A Wayne County public official finds himself on the wrong side of the law.  Honesdale Borough Council member Harry Devrieze is facing theft charges after police say he took money for a renovation project, but never followed through with the work.

John Bryan Robinson says he contracted and paid Devrieze close to $5,000 to put in new counter tops at his Honesdale home, but after three years of failed attempts to get his money back and with the work never done, he had no choice but to file charges.

Devrieze took full responsibility for himself and his company 'Lakeland Stair and Millwork,' Monday, after being asked about the situation.
