From the Dallas times
Joseph Bobadilla and Rebecca Evans were charged with theft. Bobadilla is accused of stealing items from the leveled store and exchanging them at other stores for credit, sheriff’s office says
Two Dallas County sheriff’s deputies were arrested Thursday after they were accused of stealing from a Home Depot store destroyed by a tornado last month.
Joseph Bobadilla, 25, and Rebecca Evans, 41, were charged with theft of property between $750 and $2,500. As a public servants, they face an enhanced theft charge, a state jail felony, authorities said.
Home Depot’s corporate office notified the sheriff’s office that Bobadilla had stolen from the store on Forest Lane, which was leveled when several tornadoes tore through the Dallas area Oct. 20.
Bobadilla was booked into the Dallas County Jail about noon Thursday. He posted a $500 bond about 1:40 p.m., records show. Evans was booked into the jail around 3 p.m., also on a $500 bond.
The sheriff’s office said Bobadilla had been working off-duty guarding the Home Depot store after it was destroyed.
“During his shifts, Bobadilla would take items from the store and later exchange them at another location for in-store credit, subsequently purchasing items with the in-store credits he received,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release. Details on Evans’ arrest weren’t immediately available.”
An Oklahoma police chief was killed during a physical altercation Sunday in Florida, and his co-worker was arrested in connection with his death, according to authorities.
According to the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office in Florida, deputies responded to the incident at about 9 p.m. at a hotel on Pensacola Beach. They arrived and found the victim, Lucky Miller, dead at the scene. Miller was the police chief in Mannford, Oklahoma.”
“A Chicago police officer was arrested on three misdemeanor charges after slapping a fellow officer early Friday as she tried to enter a Lakeview East bar in Halloween makeup, officials said.
Someone at a bar in the 3700 block of North Broadway called police about 1:20 a.m. – just after Halloween ended, according to Sally Bown, a spokeswoman for Chicago police.
The caller said “a 30-year-old (woman) was told she could not enter the establishment,” Bown wrote in an email.
But the woman – who later was found to be an off-duty Chicago police officer herself – continued trying to get inside the bar, authorities said. Officers who responded found the woman and told her “she was prohibited from entering the establishment,” Bown said.
Even after that, the woman, who police said appeared intoxicated, again tried to get into the bar. And again officers tried to stop her.”
That’s when the woman “became aggressive and struck an officer in the face with an open hand,” Bown said.
I will disappear in fog and night
Subdued in sound sleep
They will spirit me away
And charge me with my crimes
They will call me many names
Even some that I may claim
But none will be my own
Traitor or subversive
Criminal or defendant
Even something worse
But I refuse to swear allegiance
To the police state
And fealty to the men
Clad in black
I will not submit
Nor ever kneel down
Though they may lay me
On the ground
But they don’t know
That I stole into the great hall of Valhalla
In deepest dark of night
And took with me
One of their mighty spears
Usurped their valor
And added it to my might
Now they will have to carry me
Proudly on my shield
Though my burning bier
Be but a lonely cell
It will be my burial
And tonight I will dine
In the great hall of Valhalla
That place that still lives on
In the mind of men
