Sometimes criminals don’t think everything through when committing their crimes, which can be confirmed when a former parking enforcement officer stole $89,000 in coins while at work! To make it even worse, Jeffrey Daday, 36, of North Salem, would deposit the coins at his bank while wearing his uniform.

Daday faces up to six months in prison after workers at the bank caught on to his pattern of depositing bags full of coins into his personal bank account while wearing his uniform. The bank notified police and investigators from the District Attorney’s office began watching Daday and it didn’t take long for them to find out what he was doing.

This lead to the obvious: Daday was removing coin chambers from the parking meters and emptying them into his own pockets. Needless to say, Daday has resigned from his job and plead guilty for second-degree grand larceny and first-degree offering a false instrument for filing and faces up to 15 years in jail.
