This was run on the local news last night. He'd take the wallet of the driver, take the cash, and return it with most of it missing.

ETA: IIRC from the story last night, he only joined the department in August.

What an idiot.

On a seperate note; it seems like he would be charged with larceny instead of robbery.

What a class act.

But who gives their whole wallet to an officer?

he would take all your cash..

he was busted by an undercover sting on his sorry ass..

The article I saw said he was taking the money from the wallets of people he had arrested. I know that is the only time I'll have someone's wallet. Countless times I've had people had me their entire wallet instead of just their license. I have them remove the license so there cant be a claim I stole something while handling their wallet

This story is bogus.

He was only holding the money because they couldnt prove it wasnt drug money.........


(God I wished this was a joke)

He decided to extort money for himself rather than for his bosses, considering the similarity how does the mob handle this type of situation?

I can't watch the video right now, but that does make sense.

And good CYA skill on your part.

Here's the GA code on armed robbery, it wouldn't be a huge stretch to make it fit:

1-14 (a) A person commits the offense of armed robbery when,
1-15 with intent to commit theft, he or she takes property of
1-16 another from the person or the immediate presence of
1-17 another by use of an offensive weapon, or any replica,
1-18 article, or device having the appearance of such weapon.
1-19 The offense of robbery by intimidation shall be a lesser
1-20 included offense in the offense of armed robbery.

I wonder if he was targeting just Hispanics.

The part in red wouldnt apply in this part IMO. He wasnt using the gun to take the money from the victims. Instead, he waited until they were under arrest and would then remove the money. YOu could try to stretch that statute, but I bet it will be changed to a larceny offense when he pleas.

They are easy targets for the most part. Most arent going to say anything for fear of their immigration status being brought up.

"Are you in this country legally? Oh, you aren't? Hand over the wallet, then..."

Would the GBI officer have been flagged as such when the officer that pulled him over ran him through the computer? Wonder if he (GBI officer) nailed him before or after he got arrested as it sounds like the money was taken before an arrest took place.

No, the agent wouldnt have been flagged. I would think the agent let the officer complete the arrest/theft and never said anything to him. They probably secured a warrant and garbbed him the next day at work (the classic "Hey Bob I need to talk to you for a sec) scenerio)

Good grab. Someone give him a kick in the jimmy for being a dumbass.

Without a doubt. And probably why robbery was filed.
