I can see your future.......I see a paid administrative leave in your future.
F*ck the police. F*cking criminals.

So they didn't even ask, he just admitted to taking it? He's to stupid to be a corrupt cop.

He was criminally charged. He'll likely be fired.

I wonder what they will do with that $4000.

They should retrain him, in that when he takes a suspect's money for no good reason, call it a civil forfeiture.

You mean the evidence? The cops will need to hang on to it.
 
2017-12-07 04:54:53 PM  
Don't play dumb, you know what $1,000 we're talking about. The $40 you found right there.

I would think the lady would get her $3,000 back.

That $2000 would probably help her in a lot ways to help in such a tough economy.

with overtime, he was easily making six figures a year.  Tossed that for $6,000?  If I'm gonna' take a risk like that, it's gonna be for at least five times my annual salary

I'm always amazed at how cheaply these guys sell themselves out.  Getting past the basic dishonesty, do you really want to flush a career down the toilet for six thousand bucks?

Concealing Evidence is a violation of 18 USC

His Sergeant turned him in? He must be a fist-class dick for his superiors to not cover for him.

How many investigations are on-going, towards either this farkhead, or the department?  How big of a fark-up was the original search warrent?  How public was this particular far-up?

Senior officers may be in CYA mode.

Maybe this is one of the 10 or 11 good departments out there, where every cop isn't a douchebag.

Barely can pay a bill or two with that $500.

The assumption is that he's throwing it away for 6k. If this was an ongoing thing, it would be a much larger amount.
 
2017-12-07 05:48:33 PM  
You know, I have a surge of sympathy for the guy.

Maybe he's in a financial crunch.  Looks and sees a stack of cash.  Probably in a house that is drawing police in tactical vests, a pile of cash was obtained illegally.  It'll just wind up in an evidence drawer helping nobody.

Yoink!

The fact that he panicked and admitted to it makes me think it was his first effort at doing something this dumb.

So, yeah, I wouldn't have done it.  He shouldn't have done it.

But, when some non-cop does something stupid, I tend to think, "It was only $5k, why fark up his whole life for it?"

He had it stolen for a few minutes until he thought better of it.  Then, he returned it.

I do not tend toward being a police apologist, but I don't hate this guy.

Good point.  He may have accumulated quite a lot of cash over time.

OR... his sergeant took the opportunity to rid the squad of a real scumbag.
 
2017-12-07 06:08:36 PM  
The street value of that cash was almost 10 grand.
 
2017-12-07 06:09:36 PM  
Untraceable. And the officer very likely won't get charged with anything.
 
2017-12-07 06:20:57 PM  
I'm calling it: the money was marked part of a sting, and they needed the cash to prove the drug raid.  Idiot didn't simply steal money from a drug dealer, he stoled department's money.

What can you even buy with $125? I mean, really.

At least he confessed and it wasn't in Rubles.

Well even so, $50 is $30.

Really?

So, perhaps you can tell me which criminal would snitch five or six grand and then admit it and give it back?

No matter what this guys did, he's still better than 99% of criminals. At least, criminals guilty of property or violent crimes.

If he had of kept the cash, and then got caught, I might agree, but not in this case.

The reason why I think the cash was part of an undercover drug sting, is there was an undercover cop specifically looking for the cash.  Meaning, they wrote the serial numbers down from those bills, and was the link connecting the drugs they bought prior to the raid, and the house.  They weren't going to quit looking for it, and he realized it.

I used to think dishonesty was an automatic firing for cops. But I've seen too many examples in opposition to that to think it's automatic any more.

It's possible that the fact he confessed to the theft might help him out. It shouldn't, but it might.

it's this position, today, is all he's lost. another PD wil gladly hire him, the sooner he's willing to move, the faster.

???? How do you figure? Assuming he was getting 50k a year normally, that would mean that he's putting in around 25 hours of overtime in every week. I don't know any place, government or otherwise that would ok that expenditure for that duration. And that is assuming that he's around the median wage. The way the article sounds, dude was fairly new to the force, so we're really looking at closer to 40k a year. Which puts his overtime at 30+ hours a week.

I know a former LEO, who even after 5 years on the force, was getting less pay than what the department was spending in gas for his cruiser.

This guy is apologizing like a twelve year old caught shoplifting a candy bar.

When he ends up in prison with a reputation as a dumb cop, his dance card is going to be full.

He took something that he damned well knew wasn't his. Thief. Period.
