Two Baltimore cops caught on video looting 7-Eleven during riots

According to a report from the Baltimore Sun this week, two Baltimore correctional officers were arrested and charged with looting a convenience store during the riots last month that erupted after the death of Freddie Gray.

Video surfaced of Tamika Cobb and Kendra Richard stealing merchandise from a 7-Eleven on the corner of W. Baltimore and Howard streets on April 25.

The officers were charged with theft and burglary and placed on unpaid leave, according to the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services.

In the video, posted to YouTube, Richard is seen coming out of the store holding Slim Jims, while Cobb has Tostitos chips, police said. Police identified Richard as the woman exiting the store wearing yellow tennis shoes, black Adidas jogging pants and a jean jacket. They said Cobb was the one in yellow shoes, blue pants and a black sweatshirt with a large white graphic on the front.

“We will not allow the vast majority of our employees who are honest and hardworking to be tainted by the actions of a few,” Public Safety and Correctional Services Secretary Stephen T. Moyer said in a statement.

Both officers’ bail has been set at $35,000.
