WASHINGTON (AP) — A Metro report says an employee was fired this year for repeatedly taking home an agency-owned vehicle.

The Washington Examiner, citing a Metro inspector general report, says the man fired was a technician whose job was to check on Metro’s automatic parking lots and make sure they were properly collecting fees. The report says the man drove the agency service vehicle to his home during work hours and would stay there.

More than 100 Metro employees are provided vehicles owned by the transit agency, but Metro spokesman Dan Stessel says the technician was not part of the take-home program.

The technician, whose name was not released in the report, was fired in April.
