Montgomery County Police Sergeant Faces Theft Charge

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) Montgomery County officials say a police sergeant has turned herself in after pocketing thousands of dollars from altered payroll submissions.

County police charged Sgt. Jacqueline Davey on Friday with one count of felony theft scheme. They say she reduced the amount of leave subtracted from her leave balance.

Detectives began looking at Davey's payroll entries in October when a reviewer found she had not been at work for a shift that she had claimed on a payroll submission. Her time sheets from January 2008 to last November showed that she allegedly received more than $10,000 for hours that she had not worked.

Davey, who joined the force in 1993, was suspended with pay in December and put on administrative duty. Officials have now suspended her without pay pending her trial.
