Apple’s head of security charged with bribery

Apple’s head of global security, Thomas Moyer, has been charged with bribery in order to get concealed firearms licenses.


Indeed, it is illegal to carry a concealed firearm without a concealed weapon license. The two police officers involved with Mr. Moyer have also been charged for requesting bribes for the licenses. It would seem that the police officers refused to give the permit until Mr. Moyer offered $70,000 worth of iPads to the sheriff’s office.


In August 2019, after a search warrant was issued to seize the police’s concealed weapon license records, the police officers would have held back the permits until the security chief gave something of value in return. If these charges are proven true, they would face prison.


A California grand jury brought the charges to Apple on Monday, which did not comment on it.
