Guards charged with credit-card theft
Two state corrections officers at the Central Booking and Intake Center in Baltimore have been charged with stealing credit cards from people under arrest.
Lontona Maria Webb, 38, and Latoya Renee James, 24, were arrested Monday and charged with several counts of credit-card fraud, identity theft and misconduct in office. Police also arrested Michael Moore, 26, who they said was Miss Webb’s boyfriend.
Authorities said the economic crimes division of the state’s attorney’s office had been investigating the case since February after several detainees complained that their credit cards were stolen while they were being held at Central Booking. A grand jury indicted the three last week.
Jail officials said the credit cards were stolen from detainees between November and March and that at least eight victims lost more than $5,000 each.
Miss Webb was fired in March and Miss James has been placed on administrative leave pending completion of an investigation, a spokesman for the center said.
Teen’s killer gets 35 years
