Apple security arrested

Apple's chief security officer has been charged with bribery for allegedly offering to donate many iPads to the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office in exchange for concealed carry weapons permits for Apple employees.

Thomas Moyer, Apple's head of worldwide security, was indicted last week as a part of a two-year investigation into the sheriff's office, the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office said Monday. Moyer allegedly agreed to donate 200 iPads worth $70,000 to the Sheriff's Office in exchange for four permits that had been withheld from Apple employees, the District Attorney's Office said during a statement.

The deal was scuttled in August 2019 when Sheriff's Department officials involved within the scheme learned of the District Attorney's investigation into the department's concealed carry licenses, the DA's office said.

Also indicted within the scheme were Santa Clara Undersheriff Rick Sung and Capt. James Jensen, who allegedly requested the bribes, the DA's office said.

Apple is headquartered in Santa Clara County, the guts of the Silicon Valley .

Earlier this year, Apple was granted a short lived restraining order against a San Francisco man who allegedly showed up at Tim Cook's house with a bottle of champagne and flowers, on another occasion entered the Apple CEO's property without permission and made threatening statements.

Neither Apple nor Moyer skilled requests for comment.
