Tollway Employees Pilfer $25,000 In Tolls
The Illinois Tollway’s Inspector General has caught some Tollway employees red handed–taking cash from toll booths according to the Sun-Times.
At least one dozen employees (now former employees) took at least $25,000. One 27-year veteran admitted to taking $7000. Another employee was caught classifying regular cars as emergency vehicles (which are not supposed to pay) and pocketing the tolls. Investigators got wise when they saw a suspiciously large number of emergency vehicles recorded on the books.
