A Deputy Chief with the Camden County Fire Police department is accused of stealing more than $500 worth of gasoline.
Prosecutors say that John Murrow, 59, of Somerdale, was issued a summons today. He's accused of stealing that gas from fueling stations for county vehicles.
According to the Camden County Prosecutor's Office, Murrow was caught on video surveillance filling up his county vehicle, but then also filling up several gas containers for personal use from the county fueling stations.
An investigation was launched after county officials noticed that Murrow's fuel consumption was a lot higher than others in the department.
Murrow has worked for the county for more than 30 years.
“This type of behavior will not be tolerated by the Freeholder Board and anyone who tries to steal public resources will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” Camden County Freeholder Scott McCray said in a news release issued tonight.
Murrow is suspended with the intent to terminate.
