Florida Officer steals watch

The investigation into a break-in at a Jared jewelry store took a twist Thursday morning when Pembroke Pines police announced the arrest of one of the officers who answered the burglary call.

According to police, Officer Kevin Burgs stole a $795 watch from the business at 11077 Pines Blvd. The incident was captured on surveillance video cameras inside the store, police said.

Pembroke Pines police say that a nine-year veteran Kevin Burgs was caught by surveillance cameras stealing the expensive watch from the very store he responded to after a burglary.

Cops were called to the Jared, located on 11077 Pines Blvd., on Wednesday night after thieves broke into the store through the ceiling using a pick axe.

The thieves smashed display cases inside the store with the same pick axes and got away with an estimated $75,000 worth of items.

The burglary was captured on video. And, according to a report, an employee reviewing the surveillance not only saw the thieves break in, but also eventually saw Officer Burg allegedly ganking a watch after he responded to the store’s call.

Burgs, 36, was arrested and charged with grand theft. He was also placed on suspension with pay pending the outcome of the investigation.
