Honor Student of the Week

Posted on December 17, 2014

Chicago Police BadgeIn what may be a first, this week’s Honor Student is a Chicago cop who allegedly likes to get her drink on and enjoys brisk walks through parking lots. Please meet, police officer Katrina Grey:

“According to police reports, on Oct. 18, Costco security saw a customer at its store at 1430 S. Ashland Ave. take a bottle of wine off the shelf and place it in her shopping cart. She then moved to the back of the store, where security saw her place the bottle in her purse.

The customer then walked past the cashiers and out of the store without paying and was stopped.

It turned out the customer was off-duty police officer, Katrina Grey, 42, assigned to the organized crime division.”

D’oh! We’re familiar with POs getting a courtesy friends and family discount from time to time, but we’re thinking 100% off is a bit much.

“Police reports indicate that after Grey was caught she ran through the Costco parking lot chased by store officials until she was caught and taken into custody just down the street.”

Shoplifting plus a bonus foot pursuit. If only we had the scanner traffic from that one.

Keep it short and to the point. Name calling and similar stupidity will be deleted. If you insist on writing several paragraphs, start your own blog.

    C’mon, don’t be too harsh on Katrina. Only makes 80K a year. Figure in another 20K for bribes, kickbacks and shakedowns surely you can’t expect one of Chicago’s finest to get by on such a paltry amount. I suppose if you leave something out of value, if the thieves don’t take it, the police will.

    Plus she probably doesn’t get enough overtime. Hope it was a good bottle at least. Did she get to keep it?

    Dumb-down the police recruiting standards – solely for the sake of forcibly making the police force “look-like” the cross section of the community – and this will always be an unintended consequence. Keep paying your higher-level taxes for a dumbed-down police force. The good cops get tainted by association.

    Have you seen the new “Breathe Easy” “Don’t break the Law” t-shirts?

    The big question is will she be fired from the CPD? Me thinks no.
