For Immediate Release                                                                     January 14, 2014

 

DISTRICT HEIGHTS POLICE OFFICER INDICTED FOR FELONY THEFT

 

            State Prosecutor Emmet C. Davitt announced today that Daniel T. Foxx, age 42, a resident of Laurel, Maryland employed as a police officer for the City of District Heights, Maryland, was indicted by the Prince George’s County Grand Jury for felony theft of more than $1,000.00 but less than $10,000.00.  The indictment alleges that Foxx submitted time sheets and was paid by both the City of District Heights as a police officer and by a private business entity as a security guard for allegedly working for each during the same hours between August of 2010 and June of 2011. 

            Trial is scheduled for March 31, 2014.  The maximum punishment for the offense charged is 10 years imprisonment and a fine of $10,000.00.

            State Prosecutor Emmet C. Davitt stated: “Honesty and integrity are the most basic core requirements for service as a police officer.  When law enforcement officers deliberately violate those standards for personal gain, they seriously erode the public trust in our criminal justice system.  ”

Although charged, Officer Foxx is presumed innocent unless and until there is a conviction on those charges.
