North Carolina Cop Caught Stealing at Grocery Store, Gets Arrested

A Charlotte police officer stole food from a Harris Teeter grocery store on multiple occasions.

Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Officer Samuel Yaravitz, 43, was arrested on Thursday after he was identified as a suspect in seven shoplifting cases which occurred between February 13th and May 9th of 2018.

Officer Yaravitz makes $71,446.34 a year, so it is unclear why he resorted to stealing when he obviously makes enough money to purchase food the legal way.

Police say that they received information that Officer Yaravitz was shoplifting at Harris Teeter. Upon receiving the aforementioned information police immediately launched a criminal and internal investigation.

All of the incidents occurred at the Harris Teeter, located at 6701 Morrison Blvd. Charlotte, NC. Officer Yaravitz was arrested and charged with seven counts of larceny. Officer Yaravitz is a patrol officer and he drove his patrol vehicle to Harris Teeter when he shoplifted. Yaravitz was hired by the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department on June 23, 1999.

Chief Kerr Putney released this statement:

“We are charged with upholding and enforcing the law and will continue to hold ourselves accountable when we violate it. I am disappointed that a member of our department has fallen short of our organization’s high standards.”

In a press conference Chief Putney noted that there was enough evidence to arrest Yaravitz, although the Chief did not elaborate on the evidence. Yaravitz has been suspended without pay.

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.
