Dirty Cop Now Driving City Bus

Heist cop hired to drive B'klyn bus
The New York Post by Doug Auer and Jeffifer Fermino - December 5, 2011
He’s gone from Butch Cassidy to Ralph Kramden!

An infamous dirty cop — who was caught moonlighting as a bank robber in the 1990s — has a new gig driving a city bus in Brooklyn, The Post has learned. Former Queens cop Paul Voss is now working the night shift driving the B44 bus, some 13 years after his arrest for sticking up five banks — including one when he was on duty. The MTA knew all about his criminal past, but it decided to hire the badge-betraying bandit last April. The now-repentant 44-year-old copped to his unorthodox work history on both sides of the law when he applied to the transit agency and in subsequent employment interviews. But that didn’t preclude him from getting a job, thanks to strict state hiring laws. State agencies are forbidden from using candidates’ criminal histories against them in most cases. “He served a five-year sentence followed by eight consecutive years of gainful employment at a single company,” said MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz. “Mr. Voss further revealed his criminal record and work history to the Background Investigations Unit of the NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services, which upheld the hiring decision made by Transit.” After passing the civil-service bus-driver test, Voss was hired by the MTA at $20.38 an hour. That’s pocket change compared to what he was making during his stint as a bandit, when he netted a cool $17,000 for five quick heists in Queens from 1993 to 1997. MTA brass may have shrugged off his felonious past, but some regular riders of the B44 were a little uneasy. “Robbing a bank. That’s a serious charge,’’ said Louis Golden, 57, who rides Voss’ route from Bedford-Stuyvesant to Flatbush. Others were forgiving. “If he acknowledged he made a mistake, why shouldn’t we allow him redemption?” said passenger Teai Reid, 18. Now living in a cookie-cutter single-family home in Lindenhurst, LI, with his wife, the bank-robber-turned-civil servant refused to discuss his new vocation. He was equally taciturn when robbing banks back in the day. His MO involved wordlessly handing over notes demanding cash to terrified tellers. He flashed guns at three of them to show he meant business. At one point, a surveillance photo taken from one of Voss’ robberies was hung in his Queens precinct station house. A fellow cop thought the suspect looked like Voss, but discounted the possibility because it seemed too incredible, The Post reported in 1997. Eventually, Voss was caught in a joint investigation by NYPD Internal Affairs and the Queens DA. Fingerprints left at one of the robberies matched those of the cop.
