Ex-State Police Trooper Fired after Shoplifting Appeal Loss

A former New Jersey State Police trooper once assigned to then-Governor Chris Christie’s security detail has lost his appeal after being fired for shoplifting from a Pennsylvania Cabela’s.

Police said he bought about $200 in merchandise, but tried leaving the store with an additional $277.38 worth of items without paying. Carvounis was stopped as he tried to leave by Cabela’s employees and a Tilden Township police officer.
