A city of Norwalk water treatment plant employee currently on unpaid leave after a recent arrest never was subjected to a background check officials confirmed Monday.

The employee, Wesley Mills, 30, of Roseville, was arrested April 2 by Huron County sheriff's deputies for a license-plate violation on U.S. 250 in Norwalk Township.

Mills was found to be in possession of a spoon used for drug abuse and suspected methamphetamine pipes during that traffic stop. The pipes have been sent for lab analysis.

Mills is incarcerated at the county jail.

According to several news reports and his own admission, Mills was already on probation for counterfeiting money.

To find out why the background check wasn't performed and to learn more details about the counterfeiting case and current troubles Mills is facing, read the story in Tuesday's Norwalk Reflector.
