NC officer accused of stealing from grocery store

CHARLOTTE (AP) Detectives in North Carolina say a police officer is accused of shoplifting from a grocery store.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney told a news conference May 10 that officer Samuel Yaravitz was identified as a suspect in seven shoplifting cases from a Harris Teeter between Feb. 13 and May 9.

A news release from police said CMPD began a criminal and internal investigation after getting word that that one of its officers was shoplifting at a supermarket. Evidence and information gathered during the investigation helped detectives identify Yaravitz as the suspect.

Yaravitz, who is charged with seven counts of larceny, joined the police force in June 1999.
