A Dunkirk, Maryland police lieutenant is charged with tax evasion for the years 2014-2019.  The officer owned and operated a company that employed off-duty law enforcement officers to provide security services to apartment complexes and other businesses.

For years 2014-2019, he is accused of depositing roughly $1,397,295 in checks written for company’s services into his personal bank account or into his children’s bank accounts.  These funds were not reported as income for his business or personal tax returns, which resulted in a total of $484,281 in lost tax revenue.

If convicted of all charges, the police lieutenant could face up to 25 years in federal prison.
