Joseph C. Hartdegen, a former Traffic Court security guard, has been arrested in connection with a ticket-fixing scheme.
Police spokesman Ed Tenuto said Hartdegen, 24, was arrested Monday afternoon after the district attorney's office approved the warrant.
Hartdegen was charged with theft, attempted theft, tampering with public records, tampering with evidence, and impersonating a public servant.
Court sources said the investigation centers on tickets from each police district that were gathered in locked canvas bags and stored in a hallway outside the police office in Traffic Court. Tickets were apparently taken from the bags before they could be entered into the court's computer system.
