Baltimore Correctional Officers Charged with Looting Convenience Store

Posted:

BALTIMORE (AP) - Two Baltimore correctional officers were charged Wednesday with looting a downtown convenience store during unrest last month over the death of Freddie Gray.

Tamika Cobb and Kendra Richard were caught on video taking merchandise from a 7-Eleven on April 25, according to the state Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services. The store was one of several damaged and looted after protests turned violent over Gray's death after he suffered a severe spinal injury in police custody on April 18.

The department says Cobb and Richard were assigned to facilities downtown. The two are placed on unpaid leave.

It is unclear if either Cobb or Richard has a lawyer.
