Off-duty NYPD cop busted for stealing soap, toothbrushes from Newburgh Walmart
He’s so clean it’s a crime.
An off-duty NYPD officer was busted for stealing soap, toothbrushes and other cleaning supplies from a Walmart in Newburgh, N.Y., cops said.
Shawn Carter, 44, who lives in neighboring New Windsor, was using the self-checkout line, but he only scanned some of his items through on Friday night, police sources said.
He didn’t pay for $46.84 in merchandise — Irish Spring body wash, three toothbrushes, Percil laundry detergent containers, and Brute-brand plastic bags, police sources said.
Carter, who’s assigned to Transit Bureau Special Operations, made $112,888 with overtime in 2016, payroll records show.
He was suspended after the arrest
He was charged with petit larceny, issued a desk ticket, and must appear in court Jan. 9, police said.
Carter did not return a message seeking comment Monday.
