An employee of the Norwalk Transit District is accused of stealing more than $20,000 from the transportation service.
Police said they received a complaint in February 2017 about an employee stealing from the Norwalk Transit District and identified 39-year-old Otis Weeks, of Norwalk, as a suspect.
They said he’s accused of stealing more than $20,000 from August 2016 through February 2017 by accused of manipulating the payroll and adding hours to certain employees’ pay, which generated a separate paycheck.
He’s accused of stealing the checks and forging the employees’ signatures to deposit them.
Norwalk detectives arrested Weeks this morning after he turned himself in.
He has been charged with first-degree larceny, 25 counts of third-degree identity theft and 25 counts of second-degree forgery. Bond was set at $100,000.
