    The Montgomery County Police Department is investigating one of their own for altering her paychecks to get money for time she didn't earn.  

    Sgt. Jacqueline Davey, with the 4th District in Wheaton, Md., turned herself in this morning, according to Montgomery County police.

    In October 2009, detectives from  the Montgomery County Police Criminal Investigation Division began looking into Davey's payroll entries after a reviewer noticed she had not been at work for a shift that she submitted for pay.

    Detectives did an audit of her timesheets from January 2008 to November 2009.  They discovered Davey was paid more than $10,000  for work she had not done, according to Montgomery County Police.

    Davey was suspended with pay and was reassigned to administrative duties while the investigation continued.

    After she turned herself in, Davey was suspended without pay pending the outcome of the trial. She has been with the police department since 1993.
