Caltrans Employee Charged With Taking $100,000 In Bribes

The California Attorney General's Office has charged a Caltrans employee with taking bribes in exchange for awarding construction contracts. 

An indictment filed in Placer County Superior Court alleges Alex Moraless III asked for and received $100,000 in bribes and a new pickup in a five-year period.

Morales was the contract coordinator for Americans With Disability Act projects.  

The charges include a special allegation of a  white-collar crime enhancement because the value of the bribes is more than $100,000.

A warrant for his arrest was signed by a judge Tuesday. Bail for Morales was set at $50,000.
