NASHVILLE- The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation today arrested a former employee of a division of Hollingsworth Oil Company in Robertston County for forgery after he was indicted by the Robertston County grand jury last week.

Dave Vick, 56, of White House, surrendered to authorities this afternoon after being indicted on 23 counts of forgery. Vick is a former employee of Environmental Services and Petroleum Maintenance, LLC a division of Hollingsworth Oil Company. Between January 2011 and February 2012, Vick coerced employees of the company to forge documentation to provide to the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation for verification of compliance with environmental regulations. More specifically, the forgeries were committed on logs documenting inspections of storage tanks and containments to prevent spillage.

The 19th Judicial District Attorney General’s Office requested TBI to investigate in June of 2012 and search warrants were executed at the business located on Memorial Boulevard in Springfield as part of the investigation in June of 2012.

Vick was released on his own recognizance.
