Arrest records show a Bridgeport police lieutenant charged with stealing money from the department had a pattern of working minutes of the time he was being paid for before returning home.
According to the Connecticut Post, investigators found at least 11 instances last year where Lt. Stephen Shuck, 64, was at home when he was supposed to be at work.
An arrest affidavit states Shuck's actions equated to more than a $2,000 loss to the city.
Shuck was arrested Tuesday on a first-degree larceny charge. He has been suspended from the department without pay.
If convicted, Shuck could face up to 20 years in prison and a loss of his pension.
It's unclear if Shuck has a lawyer.
