[May 16, 2013, Bel Air, MD] — Harford County Sheriff's detectives have arrested two Harford County employees and have charged them each with ongoing thefts of gasoline from Harford County government's Scarboro Landfill operation. On May 15, 2013, Tracy L. Sexton, 43, and James E. Doran, 46, both of 607 Doctor Jack Road, Port Deposit, Maryland have been charged with theft and continuing course (scheme) of conduct (theft) for stealing gas from the fuel depot at Scarboro Landfill on Scarboro Road in Dublin.
