Man caught stealing from parking meters

Parking Officer Accused Of Stealing $89K From Meters

A New York City parking enforcement officer is accused of stealing $89,000 from local parking meters over a five-year period.

That is more than 350,000 quarters. He was arrested after allegedly making a deposit at his bank.

WNBC notes 35-year-old Jeffrey Daday was arraigned on a felony grand larceny charge. The station also says it isn¹t clear whether he¹s hired a lawyer.

WPIX says Daday faces accusations he emptied meters from 2009 to this month. Police received a tip about the alleged theft but wouldn¹t name their source.

Daday, who could face up to fifteen years in prison, has pleaded not guilty.

"The station also says it isn¹t clear whether he¹s hired a lawyer."

I know lawyers are greedy, but aren't there any who are willing to be paid in quarters? lol

Just like in "Cool Hand Luke" (only he cut the meters off) send him down to work on "the chain gang" and see if he can eat 50 eggs and put up with Strother Martin !!!

This also reminded me of that great movie! He'll get much better treatment than Paul Newman got in that flick.

So wheres the proof the Quarters belong to the city. Is there a picture showing him taking the money out of the meters. This guy will walk unless they have more than this. You think they would have wanted to catch him in the act.instead of taking someones word for it.

You are making a lot of assumptions here which are probably not true. They very probably have a good case against him.

He should have traded them for cash at some laundromats.

In Key West, a city employee who collected coins from parking meters, Gilbert Suarez, stole tons of money over a 4 year period. His wife and relatives were in on it. Then darn if a relative in jail, Danilo Suarez, wasn't later caught filing false tax returns with help of his family, and stealing from others.

These low-life thieves are born into it, it seems. The families that steal together don't necessarily stay together since someone's in prison at all times.

Thieves seem to find a way. We attended a place that has a donation system to drop money into it, and they sort of wondered where the money was going (the bottom did not have a hole in it or anything like that). One day the persons who checked the box found a long straightened-out wire coat hanger in there.with a piece of sticky chewing gum on the end. I guess he heard somebody coming and had to hide the evidence or was fumble-fingered. Never found out who it was, but the money was right after that.

Actually, it happened in one of the most corrupt little towns in the US, too. Key West.
