Police Mourning Loss

Police Mourning Loss after Krispy Kreme Truck Crashes Tragedy struck Brookhaven, Ga. late last month when a Krispy Kreme truck crashed and spilled its load of tasty donuts. Local police are still mourning the tragic loss after dozens of doughnuts fell from the Krispy Kreme delivery truck along Peachtree Road in downtown Brookhaven. Brookhaven police officers immediately rushed to the “scene” and were devastated to find doughnuts scattered along the curb. Some of the sweet treats had even fallen into a gutter. “The response time was stellar, but we couldn’t beat the 5 second rule,” Brookhaven police joked on Facebook, sharing several photos of the scene. Brookhaven police said the doughnuts were a “total loss.” “As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time, and the senseless loss of these delicious pastries has deeply affected all of our officers,” Brookhaven police said. “We ask that you keep our department in your thoughts and prayers as we mourn this tragedy, and with the holidays just around the corner, pray that another senseless accident doesn’t occur.” The BLUES Staff has started a GoFundMe account to send emergency aide to the Brookhaven Police Department to assist the officers in replacing the fallen confectionary products. Our prayers are with the families and officers in these trying times. Deputies Arrested For Looting Damaged Home Depot In Aftermath Of Tornado DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Two Dallas County Sheriff’s Deputies were arrested in November for allegedly looting during the aftermath of the October 20 tornadoes in the Dallas area. Sergeant Rebecca Evans, 41, was Joseph Bobadilla’s supervisor and allegedly assisted him in removing items from the tornado-damaged Home Depot on Forest Lane. Rebecca Evans (Dallas County Sheriff’s Dept.) was charged with theft of property and booked into the Dallas County Jail around 3:00 p.m.. She later posted a 0 bond and was released. Sergeant Evans has been employed by the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office for 16 years. She was promoted to Deputy in 2007 after having worked in the jail as a Detention Service Officer. This Home Depot on Forest Lane hired off duty deputies to protect this store’s merchandise because of the extensive damage caused by last month’s tornado. The Dallas County Sheriff’s Department said two of those working there used it as an opportunity to steal. Bobadilla, 25, was booked on November 15 into the Dallas County jail charged with felony theft. He posted a 0 bond as well.

On Thursday morning his fellow deputies raided Bobadilla’s Garland home where they removed a washer, dryer and a microwave. The sheriff’s department says the appliances were purchased with store credit. That store credit was issued for items he’s accused of stealing from the Home Depot on Forest Lane which he was hired to watch over while it’s rebuilt after being hit by last months tornado. “The department core values and what are core values are in our department are integrity, professionalism and accountability so it definitely is a slap in the face on those core values,” said Raul Reyna, a spokesperson for the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department. According to an arrest warrant, Bobadilla took “new and unopened merchandise containing moisture” to Home Depot locations in South Dallas and Balch Springs, returning them for more than ,900 in store credit. Bobadillo is accused of using that credit to buy new appliances. The Sheriff’s Department said Sgt. Evans received cash from Bobadillo in exchange for items she stole from the store. During her arraignment, she openly sobbed telling the magistrate, “I’ve never even had a traffic ticket. Sheriff’s records mention a third person, a woman who tried returning some of the stolen items at a Home Depot. She is identified as a current or former Dallas County employee and as of December 15, 2019 she has not been charged. Reprinted from Story written by J.D. Miles and Andrea Lucia from CBS Media.
