william carvounis chargedA New Jersey state trooper in Gov. Christie's security detail has been charged in Berks County on two counts of retail theft.

William Carvounis, 36, is accused of stealing $267 worth of ammo clips, gun grips, and other gear from a Cabela's sporting goods store north of Reading on Jan. 8.  Then, when that news broke on Monday, Tilden Township Police Chief William McEllroy told news outlets that Carvounis asked for a break after his arrest, mentioning that he worked for Christie.

"He said he makes $140,000 a year and he's afraid of losing his job," McEllroy told the website New Jersey Watchdog. McEllroy also said: "We don't give preferential treatment when someone breaks the law."

Reached by The Inquirer, McEllroy backed off his statement that Carvounis asked for special treatment.

"Yes, I did tell the other newspapers those things, but at this point I can no longer confirm that," McEllroy said. McEllroy added that he was not denying his initial allegations either.
