BALTIMORE (WMAR) - Twelve employees with the Baltimore City Department of Transportation may face termination after an extensive investigation by the office of the Inspector General.
According to the Department of Transportation, the investigation revealed that "Transportation employees allegedly received over $58,000 in scrap metal proceeds over a period of five months."
Along with the twelve employees that have been recommended for termination, three supervisors have been suspended for up to 28 days without without pay.
Despite the investigation, Khalil Zaied, Director of the Department of Transportation, say that most of his employees are honest.
"I will not allow the wrongful actions of a few to tarnish their good work,” said Zaied.
The department plans to partner with the Office of the Inspector General to hire someone who is responsible for investigating potential allegations of fraud, waste and abuse.
