Ap­ple’s se­cu­rity chief has been ac­cused of at­tempt­ing to bribe a Cal­i­for­nia po­lice de­part­ment with free iPads to se­cure gun li­cences for em­ploy­ees. Thomas Moyer faces charges for allegedly promis­ing to sup­ply 200 iPads to the Santa Clara county sher­iff’s of­fice in ex­change for four con­cealed-carry firearms per­mits. Moyer is head of global se­cu­rity at Ap­ple, which has its head­quar­ters in Santa Clara. The in­dict­ment fol­lows a twoyear in­ves­ti­ga­tion into al­le­ga­tions that em­ploy­ees of Sher­iff Lau­rie Smith’s of­fice used con­cealed carry per­mits as bar­gain­ing chips for bribes and do­na­tions to her re­elec­tion cam­paign.
