BALTIMORE (AP) — Federal authorities are offering rewards of up to $20,000 as their search continues for former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan’s ex-chief of staff who failed to appear for trial on corruption charges two weeks ago. Roy McGrath was declared a wanted fugitive after his disappearance and on Tuesday the FBI said McGrath is considered an international flight risk. The FBI and U.S. Marshals Service are offering $10,000 each for information leading to McGrath’s arrest. McGrath was indicted in 2021 on federal fraud charges and he's accused of securing a $233,648 severance payment equal to one year's salary as the Maryland Environmental Service's head. He also faces fraud and embezzlement charges connected to $170,000 in expenses. McGrath has pleaded not guilty.
