It’s better late than never.
Former Mayor Sheila Dixon finally returned $12,000 in city-owned security equipment this week, according to a press release from the Baltimore City Office of Inspector General.
Traditionally, mayors have returned the equipment after their terms are finished.
But Baltimore police have been trying to get permission from Dixon to remove the equipment from her home since she resigned in February 2010. Police made several attempts to recover the equipment, but were unsuccessful.
The Inspector General’s office became aware of the equipment at Dixon’s home in August 2010. Efforts from the Inspector General’s office and police resulted in the equipment being returned.
