Two Baltimore correctional officers charged for looting 7-11 during riots:
Two correctional officers have been suspended without pay for their involvement in looting during the Baltimore riots surrounding the in-custody death of Freddie Gray.
The correctional officers, 29-year-old Tamika Cobb and 28-year-old Kendra Richard, were charged on Wednesday with theft and burglary and are being processed at Central Booking following an investigation. Both were charged with second-degree burglary, fourth-degree burglary and theft of less than $1,000 value.
The charges come after the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services officers and the Intelligence and Investigative Division detectives received a tip on April 30 about Cobb and Richard allegedly looting. Detectives obtained video footage from YouTube of people entering and exiting a closed 7-11 store in the 300 block of W. Baltimore on April 25. The video shows the two leaving the store with merchandise approximately ten seconds into the video.
