Briberies for Permits in Dekalb County

ATLANTA- (WAOK) A former Dekalb County employee has admitted to pocketing cash for permits. Dameco Moss admitted that he took money from several local restaurants in exchange for permits, regulating the disposal of fats, oil, and grease.

After an internal investigation, he, along with former Dekalb workers Sherod Williams and Roderick Stallworth, were fired.

Dekalb County District Attorney Robert James is investigating how the cash-for-permits scheme may have also affected the environment.

Prosecutors believe Moss took the money and, in return, skipped inspections of the restaurants. They are investigating how many businesses went without inspection and for how long.

Moss in now serving six months in jail.
