The probable cause statement reads: Defendant worked as a Sergeant for the St. Louis County Police Department (SLCPD) where his role was to provide direct supervisory support to his subordinates, which included security officers and police officers at the St. Louis County courthouse and justice center in Clayton. It was determined through investigation that on November 23, 2023, and January 1, 2024, Defendant was paid for 18.2 hours of work on holidays that he did not perform. It should be noted that work performed on holidays are paid at double an SLCPD officer's usual hourly wage.

Specifically, it was determined St. Louis County Police said the Defendant scheduled himself to work in his supervisory capacity in Clayton on November 23, 2023 (Thanksgiving Day) but through various records and investigations, it was determined that Defendant was physically in Branson, Missouri that entire day. Similarly, on January 1, 4024 (New Years Day), Defendant scheduled himself to work in his supervisory capacity in Clayton on that holiday, but through investigation it was determined that Defendant was elsewhere in the St. Louis region most of that day. This type of work arrangement where Defendant schedules himself to work on holidays, earns double pay, while not actually appearing at his assigned location for work or performing any duties, was not approved by Defendant’s supervisor.
