A group of suburban public servants were arrested Tuesday in a corruption probe looking allegations they profited from their positions.
At least one of the men busted in “Operation Cookie Jar,” a former treasurer for a suburban park district, set up a company in which he made payments to himself.
The four men arrested on charges of theft of government property or official misconduct include:
Donald Jacobs, 62, the aforementioned treasurer of Posen Park District.
Martin Boyd, 62, a former village accountant for Harwood Heights.
Robert Baldwin, 67, former director of fiscal services for the Niles Township District for Special Education.
Michael Tracy, 48, of Tinley park, a former director of the Southwest Bar Association.
