Dallas County Cop Arrested, Surveillance Video Shows Him Shoplifting

A Dallas County cop was arrested Tuesday on allegations he shoplifted several times from a grocery store while in full uniform.

Darrell Moore, who makes [__more than $58,000-a-year,__](http://texas-employees.findthedata.com/l/311267/Darrell-M-Moore) would walk into the Tom Thumb grocery store in Garland, make some purchases and help himself to items on display on his way out.

The store’s surveillance system has video of him shoplifting on at least eight separate occasions, but those charges were reduced to a single charge of shoplifting under the unspoken Blue Privilege code.

Because he was a cop, police were unable to just make an arrest as they would do to anybody else once presented with video evidence.

Instead, they began an “investigation” that lasted from May 4 to June 16, which left them no doubt that he was shoplifting.

But Moore was apparently tipped off that he was being investigated and called a lieutenant from the Garland Police Department to inform him everything was just a “misunderstanding” and that he had made arrangements with employees to add the stolen items to his total bill.

But when Garland police spoke to employees, they learned that was not the case.

At one point, Moore tried to steal some brisket and pork by not scanning the items in the store’s self-checkout line, but he was confronted by a manager and was required to pay.

Nevertheless, he grabbed a couple of bags of ice on his way out the store that day.

The total value of the items he is accused of stealing is just over $69, so perhaps he was under the impression that these were just offerings to the gods that were available for free to him because he wore a cop’s uniform.

According to the [__WFAA:__](http://www.wfaa.com/story/news/crime/2015/07/28/dallas-county-deputy-arrested-for-shoplifting-in-uniform/30797593/)

> In total, police say Moore stole 15 bags of ice, one 12-pack of soda, one bag of charcoal, one 8-pack of Gatorade, and three cases of water, with a total value of $69.59.
> Moore was hired by the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department as a detention service officer in March 1989 and promoted to deputy sheriff in June 1992, according to the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department. His most recent assignment prior to the allegations was the warrant execution section desk.
> He has been placed on restricted duty pending the outcome of an internal investigation, as well as the Garland criminal case.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
