City Employee Allegedly Netted $550,000 in Ink and Toner Scam

Sure, it’s just .1 percent of last night’s lottery jackpot, but it wasn’t bad scratch for 61-year-old Calvin Duncan, who, according to a release from the city’s Inspector General’s office, allegedly used his position in the mailroom at the Philadelphia Water Department to order $1.3 million of ink and toner cartridges under city contracts and offload them to an Arkansas-based reseller. If convicted of all charges against him, Duncan faces 100 years in prison and a $1.25 million fine. [U.S. Department of  Justice]
