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.
