MVA official faces charges

November 03, 1992

The Anne Arundel County grand jury indicted yesterday a supervisor at the state Motor Vehicle Administration in Glen Burnie on two counts of bribery for allegedly selling commercial driver's license test results.

State's Attorney Frank R. Weathersbee said that Alan G. Allen, 38, of the 1700 block of Independence Court, Severn, was also indicted on 10 counts of making false entries into a public record.

Mr. Weathersbee said the bribery charges stem from incidents that occurred April 14 and April 18 at the MVA, where Mr. Allen allegedly sold results of tests for commercial driver's licenses to two undercover police officers.

He said that the charges of making false entries stem from an incident March 28 when Mr. Allen allegedly entered the names of 10 drivers into the MVA computer, indicating that they had passed the commercial driver's license test when they had not.

Mr. Weathersbee declined to say how much the undercover officers paid the for the test results, why Mr. Allen was targeted for investigation, or whether drivers listed as passing the test had paid any money.
