MTA driver found guilty of printing bus passes, which were then resold

May 16, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A Mass Transit Administration bus driver has been found guilty of felony theft for illegally printing bus passes and giving them to others to sell on the black market, Maryland Attorney General J. Joseph Curran Jr. said yesterday.

Wayne Allen Brownley, 35, of the 3900 block of Brenbrook Drive in Randallstown was found guilty Friday after a trial before Baltimore District Judge Kathleen M. Sweeney, who gave him a six-month suspended sentence, a year's probation and 50 hours of community service.

The attorney general's office said Brownley used his computerized fare box to print $3 daily bus passes, which were resold on the street.

Five other MTA bus drivers have been charged with felony theft in the scheme. One pleaded guilty in March in Baltimore District Court and was placed on three years' supervised probation and ordered to pay $3,039 in restitution. The rest will be tried next month and in July.
