Baltimore County Police are continuing to investigate after a Kingsville man is charged in connection with defrauding people encountered on Craigslist.

On April 7, a male victim walked into the Dundalk precinct station to report that he had been defrauded out of money after answering an add on Craigslist. The man told police that had been looking on Craigslist for a new vehicle and came across one that he was interested in purchasing. He contacted the seller, a man who he later identified as Glenn Davis, who told him that the vehicle was no longer available but he had another vehicle for sale. He later met Davis in Dundalk and agreed to purchase a white 2002 Ford E450 van and paid him $3,000. Davis kept his money and never delivered the van. When he went back to the place where he met Davis, he was told that Davis had been showing the van to other people.

A detective assigned to the case was able to determine the actual owner of the van (it was not Davis). The van’s owner told the detective he had not seen the van since June 2014. At that time, he took it to Allstar Automotive in the 1000 block of Old Eastern Avenue 21221 after it broke down. When he took the van to Allstar Automotive, it had $5000 of exercise equipment in the back. He made payments for repairs to the van that totaled $2556 but never received the van back. In November 2014, Davis contacted him, offered to buy the van from him, and he accepted. Davis told him that he would send him the $7500 agreed upon purchase price by November 14, but Davis never sent the money.

The van’s owner told the detective that since January he had received several calls from people that stated they purchased the van from Glenn Davis but never received the van or the title. The van owner’s business phone number had been on the side of the van.

During the investigation, detectives found other victims who had contacted Davis in response to a Craigslist advertisement for a van. The victim would meet with Davis, look at the white 2002 Ford E450 van, and either pay part of, or all of the agreed upon price. Davis would tell the victims that he would deliver the van to them at a later time but never did.

Several of the victims were able to get some of their money back from Davis after they threatened to call police. Those victims never received all of their money back.

An undercover detective posing as an interested buyer contacted Glenn Davis about the Craigslist advertisement for the van and arranged to meet him at a gas station on Belair Road. After meeting at the gas station, Davis took him to a storage lot and showed him the white 2002 Ford E450 van. Davis told the undercover detective that he would need a $1,200 down payment for the van and would provide the title once the van was inspected. Police then took Davis into custody.

Glenn Stanley Davis (51) of the 6500 block of Mount Vista Road 21087 has been charged with multiple counts of theft. He was released on $75,000 bail.

This incident remains under investigation by the Dundalk / Precinct 12 Investigative Services Team.

Anyone with information on any of these incidents or who suspects that they may have been the victim of this type of crime is asked to call police at 410-887-7309.

A Baltimore County Police sergeant has been suspended without pay after being charged by the Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office in connection with a complex fraud investigation.

Sergeant Daniel Gregory Galloway, 40,  an 18-year-veteran of the Baltimore County Police Department assigned to the Tactical Unit of the Special Operations Section, has been charged with the following:

  • Conspiracy to Commit Theft over $100,000
  • Theft Over $100,000
  • Conspiracy to Commit Theft $10,000 to $100,000 (five counts)
  • Theft $10,000 to $100,000 (four counts)
  • Theft $1,000 to $10,000

In March, the Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office was contacted by the Health Care United Federal Credit Union about possible fraud at the institution.  Health Care United Federal Credit Union is located inside the Greater Baltimore Medical Center and handles accounts for employees of that institution, as well as for employees of Sheppard Pratt Hospital.

BCoPD detectives began an investigation and subsequently identified the wife of Sergeant Galloway -- the CEO and manager of the credit union -- as the person responsible for defrauding the institution of money. Charges against Sergeant Galloway's wife are pending.

Sergeant Galloway's wife was employed with the credit union from 2000 to November 2014. She became CEO in 2002. In November 2014, the credit union conducted a routine annual audit of its customers and discovered discrepancies in the Galloways' family accounts. Sergeant Galloway's wife subsequently resigned. The bank hired a second auditing firm to look into the matter; the case was referred to the State's Attorney and to BCoPD in March.

The investigation determined that Sergeant Galloway's wife embezzled money from the bank; falsified records; and issued checks to herself that were supposed to be for bank expenses. Investigation also revealed discrepancies with loans made by the credit union and other lenders to the Galloways. The amount of money involved remains under investigation, but police believe the amount is substantial.

Months of additional investigation showed that Sergeant Galloway was involved. Detectives found that Sergeant Galloway knew of some of his wife's activities, benefited from them and conspired to defraud the credit union.

The charges against Sergeant Galloway do not involve any of his on-duty activities with BCoPD and do not involve public funds.

Sergeant Galloway was served with a criminal summons. Because he was not taken into custody for processing, there is no statement of probable cause and no booking photo.
