Ex-Police Employee Used Government E-ZPass For Personal Travel: Report
ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY, MD - A former employee of the Anne Arundel County Police Department was recently charged with theft, a press release said.
Police accused Kenneth Moore, a former civilian employee, of using the E-ZPass transponder from his government-issued vehicle to pay personal tolls in his personal vehicle. Moore was not a police officer, but he worked for the police department.
Officers said Moore used the government's E-ZPass to pay more than 70 tolls in his personal vehicle over the past three years.
Authorities said Moore used the E-ZPass to travel in Maryland, Virginia, Delaware and New Jersey.
Police said they learned about the allegations against Moore on Sept. 26, 2023 and consulted with the state's attorney.
Court records show that the 58-year-old Odenton man was charged last Wednesday with these misdemeanors:
- Theft scheme worth $100 to $1,500 (One count)
- Theft worth $100 to $1,500 (One count)
