SHREVEPORT, LA — A Shreveport police officer was arrested in office today for allegedly stealing property during the execution of a search warrant.
Officials charged Ryan Robinson, 28, with theft and malfeasance.
Robinson is accused of stealing a ceremonial American flag during a search at a Vivian residence in August of 2010.
Sheriff Prator said the flag was not an object of the search, nor was it listed as seized property on the warrant. It was recently recovered by the Shreveport Police Department and turned over to sheriff’s investigators.
Robinson was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center.
