Miami Police Officer Gets Called To A Store For Theft Steals 700.00 Watch While There

Security cameras at a Pembroke Pines jewelry store captured not one but two burglaries this week, the second one caught a police officer stealing a expensive watch during the investigation of the first burglary, according to police.

During the investigation of a burglary at Jared the Galleria of Jewelry at 11077 Pines Boulevard, the Pembroke Pines Police Department learned that Officer Kevin Burgs, 36, took a movado watch valued at $795.00 from the store, according to new arrest affidavit from the department.

The reported theft was captured by two of the store’s surveillance video cameras. The report says a store employe who was reviewing footage from the burglary spotted the officer stealing the watch.

Burg’s arrest report states that detectives discovered the stolen watch inside the officer’s police vehicle. The report said the store wants to prosecute the officer.

Pembroke Pines Police Captain Carlos Bermudez told CBS4′s Peter D’Oench that he did not know if that suirveillance tape would be released.

“That will be up to the Broward State Attorney’s Office and prosecutors will have to review that tape,” said Bermudez.

That surveillance tape will be part of the internal affairs investigation of Burgs.

Pembroke Pines Mayor Frank Ortis told D’Oench that he could not comment yet about this case.

“It’s just too early in the investigation for me to say anything right now,” said Ortiz.

“That’s crazy, like isn’t it serve and protect,” said Pembroke Pines resident Penelope Garcia. “What was he thinking?”
Burgs was arrested Thursday morning and charged with Grand Theft. Bond was set at $1,000. After posting bail, he was released.

D’Oench stopped at Burgs’ home in Davie to try to speak with the officer. But no one came to the door when he knocked.

“He blew his whole reputation, his whole career, for a watch, a piece of jewelry, that’s ridiculous, why would you even chance that,” wondered Darcee Mixon, an employee of Second Cup coffee shop near the jewelry store. “That’s insane. Cops come in here all the time, you expect them to be above and beyond all of that, so for them to stoop to such a small level, it’s really, I can’t imagine.”

Burgs, a nine year veteran of the Pembroke Pines Police Department, has been placed on suspension with pay pending the outcome of an internal investigation.
