CIty of Peoria Redacts Basic Public Records Info In Personnel File of Robert Brewster, Key Player in Recent Arson Story
While reporting our recent story, "Good Neighbor," (here it is), we requested the personnel file from the City of Peoria for fire captain Robert Brewster, the un-charged alleged mastermind of the December 2003 fire that destroyed the nearly completed residence of Peoria residents Mike and Betty Johnson.
Readers will recall the alleged motivation for Brewster to have paid two Phoenix firefighters $250 each to torch the Johnsons' sprawling home: The couple supposedly stiffed him for thousands of dollars for his moonlighting work as a concrete sub-contractor on the residence.
