Metro equipment found at worker's home

By Washington Examiner

According to a Metro inspector general's report, more than 70 pieces of Metro equipment ,including a 32-inch computer monitor, camera equipment and a portable generator, were found in the home of a Metro supervisor, the Washington Examiner reports.

However, the employee won't face criminal charges because such behavior was an "implicitly tolerated practice" at the agency, Inspector General Helen Lew wrote in her summary of the case. According to Lew's report, other employees also took Metro gear.

perhaps the Metro supervisor was using a company owned "32-inch computer monitor, camera equipment and a portable generator" in his home for teleworking purposes?

When does borrowed turn into stolen? A month? Six months? A year?

Is there a second set of equipment for use during normal working hours?

How does this culture get changed unless all of the supervisors who "walked by the problem" experience some sanctions?

Teleworking purposes? You're probably right. That's how they fix all the escalators, after all.
