BALTIMORE (AP) — Despite his truthfulness, this police applicant won't get the job.
When asked if he had ever committed a crime, Edwin V. Gaynor checked the box marked yes. He was promptly arrested after telling officers he had carjacked a woman and robbed five persons in two incidents this year in Texas, said Maj. George Klein of the Baltimore police.
"I've never seen anything like this," Maj. Klein said. "I guess something spooked him, and he wanted to clear his conscience."
Mr. Gaynor, 21, was discharged from the Army in July and moved from Fort Hood, Texas, back to Baltimore, where he had grown up and graduated from Carver High School in 1998. On Thursday, he showed up at 9 a.m. to apply for a job.
Mr. Gaynor was charged with carjacking but has not been charged with the robbery he admitted to committing, pending further investigation by Killeen police.
