HARRISBURG, Pa. -- State police are investigating after they say a PennDOT worker stole handicap placard.
Officials have charged Ryan Robinson, a Harrisburg PennDOT worker with stealing a handicap placard to park in spots illegally, according to WPMT.
Troopers say seven other PennDOT workers were illegally using placards as well.
A recent report found that the workers in Dauphin County were using placards for themselves and giving them to family and friends.
According to PennDOT, the department closely tracks how those disability placards are issued. When discrepancies popped up, supervisors called state police.
One PennDOT employee, who did not want to be identified, called the thefts stupid.
"Everything that is done you have to log into the computer using your username, your password and everything that's processed, it will literally say your name."
Ryan Robinson faces theft charges. PennDOT officials say those seven other PennDOT workers will be charged with illegally using the placards.
