The Metro technician accused of stealing thousands of dollars of coins from Metro has been fired from the transit agency.
And the supervisor who oversaw money collection at the agency is planning to leave Metro at the end of this month, according to Metro.
Horace Dexter McDade, 58, of Bowie was arrested on Jan. 18 when authorities accused the man who fixed broken fare machines will stealing their contents. A Metro Transit Police officer who was accused of running the theft ring with him – and buying thousands of lottery tickets that led to their downfall — was fired that week.
McDade, an agency veteran of more than 32 years, was fired on Jan. 25, Metro spokesman Dan Stessel said. That’s one week after his initial arrest.
The supervisor of the revenue division was reassigned amid a review. But he told the agency he plans to leave Metro within 30 days. Stessel said it was “his decision to do so.”
