BARRE – A former Agency of Transportation worker has been charged with theft, after police found he had purchased auto parts using AOT accounts.
After a lengthy investigation, it was determined that John Johnson, 73, of Barre, bought tires and brake rotors/pads worth $969.55, according to a release.
Johnson was found to have made additional purchases but due to the statute of limitations for these offenses, Johnson was only charged in relation to five specific transactions.
Johnson later resigned his position with the AOT before the start of the State Police investigation.
On Friday, Johnson was arrested and cited to appear at Washington County criminal court on October 10.
