Baltimore Cop who Robbed Citizens Sentenced to 15 Years in Prison

In some of the cases, his victims were restrained.

Baltimore police Sgt. Thomas Allers referred to it as “taking lunch money.”

Allers, 49, was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison on Friday, according to [WBAL](http://www.wbaltv.com/article/former-gun-squad-sergeant-sentenced-to-prison/20661623).

He admitted to participating in at least nine robberies between 2014 and 2016 that yielded more than $100,000 in cash, prosecutors say.

In one incident, Allers arrested robbed a man named Davon Robinson for $10,000.

After robbing his home, Allers released Robinson.

Prosecutors say Robinson was killed after he was unable to pay back a drug debt.

“Allers released detainees and chose not to charge them criminally when he stole cash from them,” prosecutors wrote in Allers’ indictment.

In another incident, Allers’ adult son, who is not a police officer, participated in a raid in which $66,000 was taken by Allers, his son and two other detectives.

Authorities have not named the son or charged him, according to court papers.

As part of his sentence, prosecutors recommended Allers pay over $117,000 in restitution to his victims.

Allers’ defense attorney Gary Proctor said his client is an alcoholic who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder from his years of policing Baltimore’s streets.

“He’s a thoroughly decent person,” Proctor said after Allers’ sentencing.

Allers was the eighth cop indicted in the growing scandal that has consumed Baltimore’s gun unit and the first convicted.

Seven other officers are accused of carrying out robbery and extortion campaigns stretching back three years, often targeting suspected drug dealers.

Allers had worked for the Baltimore Police Department since 1996.

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.
