“Federal prosecutors say two Norfolk supervisors took thousands in bribes
by Doris Taylor
Norfolk, Va. – A run-down building is home to a plumbing company that, according to court records, passed tens of thousands of dollars in bribes to Norfolk supervisors.
A federal indictment says two Norfolk supervisors took money and free plumbing work, but no one in City Hall will say a word about it.
The indictment says the president of A. T. Zoby Mechanical on Azalea Garden Road then overbilled taxpayers so he could recoup the bribe money.
Andrew T. Zoby Jr., is the only one indicted. No one answered the door at his business and his lawyer did not return our call.
Court records do not identify the city supervisors. One is called only Person A. “He’s described as a plumbing supervisor for Norfolk who took up to $20,000 in bribes to steer work to the company.”
The other is called just ‘Person B.’ The indictment says he assisted the city’s Chief Engineer by overseeing plumbing work. Person B also owned rental property in Norfolk, and the indictment says he accepted $17,000 of free plumbing work at his rental properties.
The indictment says A.T. Zoby Mechanical bills Norfolk between $200,000 and $600,000 a year for plumbing work. Prosecutors say the bribes got the company “favorable and preferential treatment,” and the taxpayers paid the price.”
