A Parsippany resident and Department of Public Works employee is due in court Wednesday after being arrested last month for allegedly stealing four truck tires and rims from a municipal garage.
Joseph Fedo, 57, has been charged with burglary, theft, and official misconduct for the alleged crime, dailyrecord.com reported.
An investigation began on Jan. 2 when town mechanics noticed the tires and rims in question—valued at $5,600—were missing, the report said. Surveillance videos connected Fedo to the alleged theft, which took place on Saturday, Dec. 28.
The videos showed a vehicle that may have been Fedo’s arriving to the locked municipal garage at 6:30 a.m. that day, though employees do not begin their shift until 8 a.m., the report said.
Fedo was arrested and posted $5,000 bail.
