Another cop out there risking his life everyday. Who would have guessed that the guy with the badge was the real criminal? After all he is a hero right? He has a badge, a gun and a blue uniform. Remember when you see lights behind you on the highway, it could be this guy or one of his buddies

“A former Kenner police officer was arrested Friday (March 10) for allegedly stealing money and wallets belonging to Hispanic men the officer had arrested during traffic stops.

Jan Michael Gregory, 32, will be charged with five counts of malfeasance in office, two counts of felony theft and three counts of misdemeanor theft, the Kenner Police Department said.

Kenner police initiated their investigation into Gregory in February, while he was still employed by the department. He resigned Feb. 22, immediately after being confronted with evidence that he had stolen money from Hispanic men he arrested for driving without a license.

A subsequent search of a gym bag inside Gregory’s police vehicle revealed two wallets that were later linked to Hispanic men he had arrested. Detectives later identified five Hispanic men Gregory arrested between Dec. 19, 2016 and Feb. 5, 2017, all of whom reported Gregory stole their money and wallets after pulling them over, police said.

The Kenner Police Department hired Gregory on Sept. 19, 2012. He graduated from the ninth Kenner Police Department P.O.S.T. Academy in January 2013, after which he was assigned to the patrol division.”
