Officer Brent Spooner of Severn, MD indicted on submitting phony overtime hours


A Maryland state corrections officer has been implicated of faking 10s of thousands of dollars in overtime, the state chief law officer stated today.

Lt. Brent Spooner, 42, of Severn was indicted Oct. 9 by an Anne Arundel County grand jury on theft charges, The Capital Gazette reported.

Spooner worked as the manager of a firearms range at the state corrections complex in Jessup. On his timesheet, Spooner would incorrectly declare around 80 hours of overtime each pay duration, taking about $74,000 total, according to a press release from Attorney general of the United States Brian Frosh.

During times when he falsely claimed to be working overtime in a surveillance tower, Spooner was observed to be at home, running errands, walking his dog, and other individual activities, according to the news release.

Spooner was apprehended Monday and launched on $25,000 bail. No lawyer was listed as representing for him in court records, and he could not be reached for comment by the paper.
