FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) Fairfax County Police have charged three county employees with embezzling more than $12,000 at a landfill and transfer station.

Sixty-one-year-old Gurinder Singh of Chantilly, 47-year-old Bir Bhogal of Herndon and 52-year-old Segundo Ramon Beltran of Stafford have each been charged with felony embezzlement. They surrendered to police on Monday.

Police say the three men worked with the Division of Solid Waste Disposal and Resource Recovery, at the I-66 transfer station and the I-95 landfill complex. Police say the three kept cash payments from customers for themselves.
