Framingham fire inspector indicted for allegedly falsifying reports in return for free services

A Framingham fire inspector has been indicted by a Middlesex County grand jury on charges of accepting a corrupt gift, falsifying reports in exchange for services and obstruction, officials said.

According to Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan’s office, the indictments allege that Todd Young entered a Framingham body works business on Jan. 17 wearing his Framingham Fire Department uniform, authorities said.

After identifying himself as a Framingham fire fighter and fire inspector, Young allegedly said he would not issue fire code violations if he received free services from the business, according to prosecutors. Officials did not specify the services offered by the Framingham business.

Town officials could not be reached for comment Monday.

Young, 42, is scheduled to be arraigned April 3 in Middlesex Superior Court in Woburn on charges of accepting a corrupt gift, falsifying an official report, and obstruction, according to prosecutors.
