Former Baltimore worker stole, resold 100,000 gallons of fuel
A former Baltimore public works employee is awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to stealing more than 100,000 gallons of fuel from the city and reselling it.
Maurice Boone pleaded guilty Monday and court records say he'll receive an eight-year, suspended sentence and five years' probation.
He must also pay the city $187,000 in restitution, but Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Lynn K. Stewart delayed sentencing until July, a month after a co-defendant's scheduled trial.
According to court records, Boone told authorities that since 2007, he would fill a city tanker from a pump and make rounds filling city vehicles as part of his job, but would then sell the remaining fuel for $1 a gallon to the co-defendant, identified as James Wright.
