A Baltimore lieutenant who oversaw the Horseshoe Casino District has been charged with overtime theft following receipt of an anonymous letter claiming the officer was “never at work”.

Authorities say Lt. Steven Bagshaw, who has been on the force for 21 years, was earning fraudulent overtime.  This occurred despite a recent investigation and federal indictments against seven other officers accused of the same crime.

Investigators concluded that Bagshaw was paid $8,628 for time he was not working.

"Instances like this jeopardize public trust of the police department," said Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis. "Anyone who wears this uniform or works for this agency in any capacity should know that this type of behavior will not be tolerated."

And whomever said police officers are poorly paid might want to consider taking a job with the Baltimore Police force.  Bagshaw was shown to have made just shy of $200,000 last year, a good chunk of that in overtime pay.
