WASHINGTON (AP) — Two current Metro transit employees and two former employees have been arrested on theft and conspiracy charges.

Metro spokesman Dan Stessel says the arrests were made Wednesday by Metro’s police force.

A Prince George’s County grand jury indictment accuses Alfred Atanga, 50, a former Metro supervisor, of paying workers Empriss Jacobs and Keesha Richardson and ex-employee Lakisha Gardin for hours that they didn’t work in Metro’s customer service office. The four are charged with theft valued at an estimated $25,000.

Jacobs and Richardson, both customer information specialists, have been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

    When will the jibs learn that they are way too stupid to pull off this kind of crime? Shootings,car jackings,and petty theft are more their speed.

    Several corrupt DEA and FBI whose residences are in the San Jose and Milpitas California (Suburb of Silicon Valley) areas where selling drugs stollen from evidence vaults. They where also creating suspects by fabricating evidence with the intention of stealing from them.
    These problems in the FBI and DEA had gotten much worse during the recent financial crisis. The apparent motivation was that several of these corrupt DEA had overwhelming credit card debt and might have faced suspension.
