UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (WUSA9) — A Prince George’s County police officer and her husband, a former county police officer, are accused of stealing more than $200,000 by over-reporting the number of hours she was working, state prosecutors announced Tuesday.
Jennifer Simms and Harold Simms, who retired from the police department in 2015, have both been indicted on theft scheme of more than $100,000 and conspiracy for their alleged actions.
According to prosecutors, Jennifer Simms falsified timesheets between March 2012 and November 2014 while she was working for either county police or the City of College Park.
Harold Simms, who also goes by Jimmy, was once in charge of the police department’s homicide division. Prosecutors allege he knew about his wife falsifying timesheets and profited from her actions.
Jennifer Simms is a data analyst for the police department, according to our editorial partners at The Washington Post. She has been suspended from the force since May 2015.
