A 21-year veteran of the Baltimore Police Department has been charged with theft and fraud. 

According to police, Lieutenant Steven Bagshaw did not properly document days off and submitted overtime for hours not worked. He's been charged for defrauding the Baltimore Police Department, the city of Baltimore and the Horseshoe Casino of time and attendance in April and May of 2017. 

Bagshaw has been charged with two counts of felony theft scheme and two counts of unauthorized removal of property. He has been suspended without pay. 

“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.”
