Bus worker accused
of stealing thousands
COLUMBUS A transit system employee has been fired and is accused of stealing more than $50,000 in cash from fare boxes he was supposed to be maintaining.
Central Ohio Transit Authority officials said the man had been employed by the agency for nine years. He's not being identified because no charges have been filed against him.
A police investigation of the thefts is nearly finished and will be sent to a Franklin County grand jury, county Prosecutor Ron O'Brien said.
The man has agreed to forfeit his employee pension. Transit Authority spokesman Stu Nicholson said the amount of the pension was far less than $50,000.
Revenue shortfalls and the man's confession indicate the total amount stolen to be between $50,000 and $100,000, Mr. Nicholson said.
