Police Chief Arrested For Theft

Attorney General Corbett announces arrest of Chester Township Police Chief

10-29-2008 Booker T. WilsonHARRISBURG - A Chester Township Police Chief accused of using a State Workers Insurance Fund (SWIF) payment as a down payment on a brand new car was arrested today by agents from the Attorney General's Office.

Attorney General Tom Corbett identified the defendant as Booker T. Wilson, 47, 18 E. 17th St., Chester.

Evidence and testimony regarding the case was presented to a statewide investigating grand jury, which recommended the criminal charges being filed today.

The investigation, which began in January 2008 was initiated after the Department of Treasury was notified that several SWIF checks, which had been issued from June 2007 through December 2007, were never received by the intended recipient.

The grand jury found that the checks were mailed to a minimum security corrections facility, located at 201 East 12th St., Chester and intended for one of the facility's former inmates, Vaughn Moore.

Corbett said that Wilson was a part-time weekend security guard at the facility and allegedly had access to any mail left at the security desk during those weekends.

The charges state that three SWIF checks were sent to Moore at the location, despite him not residing at the facility since 2006. During the time that Wilson worked at the facility, at least three checks were allegedly forged and cashed, including a check in Moore's name, dated June 1, 2007 for more than $6,600. More.....
