Ethiopia: Second Parking attendant pleads guilty in theft of $400,000 from Smithsonian

A parking attendant who was part of a scheme that stole at least $400,000 in lot fees from the Smithsonian Institution’s aircraft museum in Chantilly pleaded guilty Thursday to theft of public money.

Freweyni Mebrahtu, 45, of Sterling is the second person to admit pocketing the $15 parking fee paid by thousands of visitors to the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center from October 2009 to July 2012, according to the plea she entered in federal court in Alexandria.

The Chantilly center, an annex of the National Air and Space Museum, includes the space shuttle Discovery in its collection.

Mebrahtu worked about six days a week for Parking Management Inc., a contractor, and masked the money she was stealing by suppressing the vehicle count at the lot, prosecutors said.

If reason of insanity and choke-bully has a power over someone’s judgement and insight and kill her by suicide, the compulsive theft shalt be pardoned, and they got to let them go. It is mental illness as any other thieves who had never been asked a question. Instead, the instigators and bullies must be arrested. Maryland is notorious and self appointed investigators’ land of diaspora. By the truth, they audited everyone without merit and warrant for more than 30 years. She killed herself. Audit DC area auditors. In Amharica, it is called “Bunna". Who that fuck gave all those assholes the right to bully, choke, pressure and audit human race at “Bunna"? Free the compulsive thieves. They got to be let go. The iron shalt chain the educated and high class bullies who wanted to defraud and please. Free the compulsive thieves and fire those assholes who instigate murder, bully and suicide. Free the compulsive thieves.

When you take the money you took a risk every illegal thing we do we should know that there is a consequence, my dear sisters wish you good luck, hope the rest of us will learn something from this….

Goraw, you are full of sh***, what is ethnic get to do with it. Are you telling me that there are no other ethnic groups doing this kind of crime? Why you are always jumping to ethnicity? You are an idiot… theft is theft it does not matter which ethnic or nationality you are coming from. Parking theft never starts by Ethiopian, the Italian did it long before Ethiopians/Eritrean took over, and the Irish did it before their offspring moved to other business… northeast parking theft moved from the white immigrants to African about few decades ago.

my advise to my fellow brother and sister gets off from that kind of business. There are two mean reasons to get out from parking business, 1st it is morally not a good thing to keep doing it, 2nd the owner of the business become smarter and they change it from human to computerized machine.

Thousands miles you travel and end up in Taxi driving and parking lot . Is it you all kuttarams and your coming generation dream ? Why do not I see a single chines in these two worst job. How many of you read a single books while sitting your AZzz in that rat hole. ? Nada.

I have travelled and seen a lot of places but what makes me sick to see Ethiopian in general in USA , specially /washington Dc. is how humans end up in one category of west of life simply to get more of human consumption and end up losing it and die without enjoying this life. Some lives to support others, that is ok, but does not mean you hav to stuck the same place until your body separates from your soul.One day you are an old person with no insurance ,with half teeth broken ,no hair,And you suddenly feel you are not catching up with others and the new comers are a treat to your last breath, you do not sleep anynmore properly with constant pain and worry that becomes a daily matter. And then ,this question comes into your brain that has betrayed you for so long why me, why not this and that, why did not I become some body like others normal person. Life is not giving to you to end up as a taxi driver or parking lot …….still young,try something that no Abesha tried before….. The world is your and life is short and go out find new. That was once the sprite of ethiopianzem.

Let’s cut to the chase here and talk honestly about such crimes. When we see some individuals who worked at such positions for a few years and buy a convenient store or open a full fledged restaurant, something is fishy here. Who can tell me and convince me that an individual who is paid less than $10-15/hr will be able to buy a convenient store worth several tens of thousands of dollars after just a few of working as a parking attendant or store clerk? Or buy a house worth hundreds of thousands of dollars? Such meteoric rise to ‘riches’ by this kind of thieves is like a double-edged knife for those of us who eke out a living in the old fashioned way of hard work. First of all, they give us all bad reputation and we have to deal with something we despise and have no part of it. The other sad ramification of such daylight thievery is the desire it ignites by every able-bodied person back home to find any way whatsoever to come here and claim the money that does not belong to him/her, not by legitimate pay but such acts of theft. Just look around and you will find them every where. Such individuals do not live by ethical standards but would rather take other people’s money. Thieves!!! Scum of the earth!!! I hope these convicts will rot in jail for giving us bad names by taking money that is not theirs!!! his/her awaiting prize, free money. And a lot of it by way of stealing.

Er’m, where exactly are those slime balls aka E’Termite & Co now? On last similar news they were claiming Amharas this & that? Karma is a ***** say clever Indians :):)

Well, it is unfortunate that these two ladies get caught out of all the men thieves. You do the crime, you better be prepared to do the time with humiliation of course. Oh, well, nothing new, or out of this world, really. We live in the world full of thieves, our economic crises was specifically caused by “high flying thieves & crooks". Remember Enron? So, it is just not fair to generalize all the (Quarter of million) mostly genius, entrepreneurial, hard working, down to earth, productive, highly regarded Ethiopians in DC & surroundings.

@ C’est moi Senait

You often leave funny posts worthy of reading. However, today, you aren’t cute at all. I bet you any money, almost all Habeshas in DC can easily flog your a$$ like sheep in some African commodity exchange. Most are way too smart for you my dear! You better know your place, quit generalizing people. From what I read, you hardly sound like a professional nor come across as a bookworm. Smh!

C’est senait, in all your travels, did you ever take the time to take English lessons at all?

My suggestion to you, do not judge people because you are not above judgement yourself.. all the other bullshit you dish out on this forum, is just that. Bullshit.

Consider this, “Its always advisable not to share your idiotic thoughts.”

Back in the 80’s and ’90’s word was that if you worked at the parking lot or as cashier anywhere, you beat or game the system. That was after Mengistu era compass-less existence where morality and Godliness were tossed out the window. Most people, new comers and those who toiled at factory jobs and other lowest paying jobs, embraced these easy occupations with their easy money with open arms. You probably did not have the kind of friend or sibling who reasoned with you to focus on your education or steer you to work as waitress or cab driver ken eskialf deres. That is how the bad culture started. If the parking lot was owned by the city, state or the federal government as in the story above, and you got busted, you went to jail; If its private company, you simply got fired. Many people from otherwise good family ended up in these occupation for lack of good judgement but
others were clearly victims of circumstances. As far as scams and embezzlements go, cashier theft is low; but it is by no means the only one. There are hundreds of theft related crimes, scams, everywhere by almost everyone.

Nazret.com the most I hate about your site is the excessive and shameful amount of negative comments. Look above, the comments are not reflective of the decency of Ethiopians. Please moderate the site.
