SCHENECTADY, NY (WTEN) – A bombshell of an investigation is going on in the city of Schenectady, New York and could have far-reaching consequences at other Capital Region departments.

This case apparently involves a Schenectady police sergeant and his ex-con lover over allegations of fraud and ties to the gay porn industry.

The wild story was first uncovered by the Times Union newspaper on Wednesday. Hours after it was published, the Schenectady Police Department confirmed that 35-year-old Sergeant Jonathan Moore is on paid administrative leave. That’s after his live-in companion, an ex-con named Anthony Aubin, was arrested two weeks ago for allegedly using fraudulent checks to try and purchase vehicles at two area car dealerships.

Colonie Police say Sgt. Moore was with Aubin when he was arrested trying to use a bad $92,000 check to purchase a Jaguar.

“Sgt. Moore was identified as being present during these transactions. On that date, our Office of Professional Standards opened an Investigation into the matter and specifically what Sgt. Moore’s involvement was. He was suspended without pay, pending the outcome of that investigation,” Schenectady Police Chief Eric Clifford said.
