NJ Transit Ticket Agent Charged with Official Misconduct, Theft, and Forgery

John A. Davey, 49, of East Brunswick Credits: Essex County Prosecutor's Office

NEWARK, NJ  John A. Davey, 49, of East Brunswick has been arrested and charged with official misconduct, theft and forgery according to  an announcement released Wednesday by Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn A. Murray and New Jersey Transit Police Chief Christopher Trucillo.

A NJ TRANSIT ticket agent for 29 years, it is alleged that Davey was forging rail tickets and selling them for cash. He would place “NO CASH” signs on NJ TRANSIT’s ticket vending machines at the New Brunswick Station, which caused cash paying customers to come to the ticket counter to purchase tickets. It is alleged that he would sell the fake pre-printed tickets and keep the cash.

At the time of his arrest, Davey was in possession of $1,285.95 in cash and 101 forged tickets. The tickets were printed on authentic NJ TRANSIT ticket stock that was allegedly removed from the New Brunswick train station by Davey.

Prosecutor Murray commended New Jersey Transit Detectives Michael Bavosa and James Garrison,III, for their work on this case.

The investigation is active and ongoing. These are mere accusations. All defendants are presumed innocent unless and until they enter a guilty plea or are found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
