A newly released indictment charges Apple’s Head of Global Security, Thomas Moyer, with for his alleged participation in a scheme to acquire concealed-carry gun permits for Apple’s security team in exchange for providing cops with iPads.
On Monday, the office of the Santa Clara District Attorney issued an announcement that a grand jury investigation found that Santa Clara County Undersheriff Rick Sung and Captain James Jensen withheld concealed carry permits from parties seeking to acquire them through a traditional application process. Instead, the cops allegedly ran an ongoing operation to pressure applicants into offering goods in exchange for the permits. Moyer was indicted for allegedly bribing an executive officer and authorities said that he promised “200 iPads worth close to $70,000″ in exchange for the approval of four concealed-carry licenses. An insurance broker named Harpreet Chadha was also accused of promising $6,000 worth of luxury box seat tickets to a San Jose Sharks hockey game in exchange for the coveted permits.
