Mississippi policewoman arrested for SHOPLIFTING shoes while on duty and in uniform
02/28/2024 // Ava Grace // Views

The Columbus Police Department (CPD) in Mississippi recently arrested one of its own for allegedly shoplifting sneakers while on duty and in uniform.

The Daily Mail reported on the Feb. 21 arrest of Robin Conner, 33, by members of the CPD following news of the incident. She was taken into custody and placed on administrative leave while the department investigated the matter. The CPD later confirmed her termination from the police department.

According to CPD Chief Joseph Daughtry, Conner had reportedly pilfered a pair of tennis shoes costing $140 from a Dick's Sporting Goods branch in the city. A store employee caught Conner in the act while still wearing police uniform, detained her and called 911. Daughtry, the assistant police chief and the captain in charge of her patrol all responded.

"It's embarrassing for the department, but we're going to treat her like we would anybody else. We have a job to do and we're held to a higher standard," the police chief said. "The community is just starting to trust us, and to take this gut punch really hurts. That's why we fulfilled our obligation, not only to the store but to the community."

Following the incident, Conner's colleagues arrested her and brought her to the Lowndes County Adult Detention Center in her own patrol car. She was then placed on immediate administrative leave and given an $862 bond.

Conner charged with misdemeanor for stealing goods

According to the Columbus Dispatch, Conner had been on the CPD since 2022. However, that came to an end when the Columbus City Council unanimously voted to fire her from the department. She was later charged with misdemeanor for stealing goods worth less than $1,000. (Related: Black activist lawyer’s idea to stop crime: Just legalize crime.)

It is unclear whether Conner has an attorney who could speak on her behalf. According to ZipRecruiter, the average salary of a CPD officer is $56,000 a year.

Several users on social media took jabs at the former police officer's arrest and termination. One user joked that they would have brought the shoes for Conner so she wouldn't have to steal them. Another user was more straightforward, writing: "Such a disgrace to the badge."

Prior to her termination as a result of the shoplifting incident, Conner used her personal Facebook account on behalf of the CPD. In one post, she warned people to "stay at home, off the roadways" due to black ice on the streets.

She has also used her Facebook page to share cocktail recipes, her extensive perfume collection and plenty of pictures of her on duty as a cop, the Mail pointed out. Her most recent post featured selfies of her wearing her uniform. It came with the caption "Happy National Law Enforcement Day" alongside three heart emojis.
