NORWALK, Conn. -- A Norwalk Transit District employee was charged with stealing more than $20,000 through forgery over the course of about six months, according to police.

Police received a complaint in February from the Norwalk Transit District about employee theft, and launched an investigation. Police said that the investigation, led by Det. Dominick Cisero, determined that 39-year-old Otis Weeks of Norwalk had stolen the money between August 2016 and February 2017.

Weeks manipulated payroll, adding hours to a certain employee's pay, which generated a separate paycheck, police said. He then stole these checks and forged the employee's signatures in order to deposit them, according to police.

A warrant was issued for Weeks's arrest and he turned himself in on Monday morning. He was charged with first-degree larceny, 25 counts of third-degree identity theft, and 25 counts of second-degree forgery. Bond was set at $100,000.
