DALLAS - A Dallas information services department manager who began
work after a hiring scandal has been charged with stealing a dozen city iPads.
Antoine Deon Flowers last September took charge of the city's desktop
computer systems with his resume that included software engineer for NASA,
service in the Army with top-secret security clearance and fluency in Spanish.
The Dallas Morning News (http://dallasne.ws/WrqFGd ) reported Sunday that
investigators believe most of the resume was made up or grossly exaggerated.
Flowers was arrested Feb. 14 and charged with theft.
City officials declined comment. Flowers, who resigned in January, wasn't
listed in jail records as being in custody Sunday and couldn't immediately be
reached for comment.
The newspaper in 2011 reported another information services leader bypassed
civil service laws to hire his church friends.
