Former Waynesboro Police Department Patrolman Rogers Charged With Official Oppression, Sexual Abuse Of Children

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Waynesboro Chief of Police James Soubier IV has worked tirelessly to ensure that his department and his personnel are held to the highest standards. In the last year and a half, two patrolmen from his department have now unfortunately committed criminal offenses, but they have both been held accountable under his watch. Waynesboro citizens can thankfully be assured that their chief is committed to transparency and will confront internal misconduct without hesitancy.


This matter was referred to the Franklin County District Attorney’s Office, in order to avoid any perceived conflict of interest by Waynesboro Police Department. After thorough investigation, a criminal complaint was filed on May 12, 2022, charging former Patrolman Kellee Rogers with official oppression and sexual abuse of children. Rogers was preliminarily arraigned at the office of Magisterial District Judge Jody Eyer.


This investigation was conducted by Chief County Detective Scott Mummert from the Franklin County D.A.'s Office Bureau of Detectives.


*NOTE: The defendant is accused of the above offenses, and readers are reminded that all defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
