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

An NJ Transit ticket agent for 29 years, Davey allegedly forged rail tickets and sold them for cash at the New Brunswick Station.

He allegedly placed “NO CASH” signs on NJ Transit ticket vending machines at the station, which lured customers who intended to buy tickets with cash to the counter, authorities said. Davey then allegedly sold fake pre-printed tickets and pocketed the cash.

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

NJ Transit police recovered additional ticket stock and a thermal printer from Davey’s East Brunswick home, authorities alleged.

The investigation was conducted by the NJ Transit Police Fraud Investigation Unit and the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office.

Davey’s first court appearance is scheduled for June 13 at Veterans Courthouse, 50 West Market St., Newark.

Murray commended NJ Transit detectives Michael Bavosa and James Garrison III for their work on the case.

The investigation is active and ongoing. Anyone with information should contact NJ Transit Police Det. Michael Bavosa at 973-491-8953.

These are mere accusations. Davey is presumed innocent unless he enters a guilty plea or is found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
