January 28, 2020

An alleged cruise to Bermuda while on duty has an American police lieutenant facing criminal charges, with David Andrade “accused of stealing $11,538 in holiday pay for time off he wasn’t entitled to, including a stint he claimed pay for when he was allegedly on a cruise to Bermuda.”

This is according to a report in the Boston Herald which said, “A now-retired state police lieutenant allegedly claimed to be working while he was actually on a cruise in Bermuda, according to court documents.

“David Andrade, 47, of Westport, pleaded not guilty Friday in Bristol Superior Court on charges including larceny over $1,200 and a public employee standards of conduct violation, and was released on personal recognizance, according to court documents and the Attorney General’s office.

“Andrade is accused of stealing $11,538 in holiday pay for time off he wasn’t entitled to, including a stint he claimed pay for when he was allegedly on a cruise to Bermuda, according to court documents.

“Andrade, a lieutenant since 2016 according to filings, committed the alleged scheme between August 2018 and August 2019 while he was the station commander at the Dartmouth Barracks.

“Shortly after Andrade started at Dartmouth, he claimed to work on Aug. 21, 2018, which investigators said was a lie.

“Investigation revealed that the Defendant was actually in the middle of a cruise to Bermuda and could not have been at work,” prosecutors say in court documents.

“Andrade, in charge of the barracks’ attendance calendars, reportedly rigged his own compensating paid days off from holidays, and made it appear as if he was at work when he wasn’t, according to court documents.”
