Citing disciplinary records it obtained, The Star-Ledger of Newark reports the trooper was suspended without pay in March and retired in April. He was not criminally charged.

The trooper stole 3,128 gallons of gas valued at $7,038 from October 2007 to March 2011. He didn’t respond to the newspaper’s request for comment.

The newspaper said the trooper forfeited accrued personal, holiday and vacation time, which was valued at roughly the same amount of gas that was stolen. And officials reduced his pension — from 65 percent of his final salary to 50 percent — and revoked his medical benefits.
