Pa. Cop Fired for Taking Popsicle, Baseballs
June 07, 2012
An Allentown (Pa.) Police Department officer was fired on Wednesday for taking a popsicle and two baseballs from a minor-league baseball stadium while on night patrol.
The City Council voted unanimously to dismiss Officer Robert H. Leuthardt, who allegedly took two used baseballs, which were likely used for batting practice, out of a golf cart. He also took a Popsicle from a concession stand at Coca-Cola Park, the home of the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, reports The Morning Call.

Sorry, but as a retired Law Enforcement Officer, "a thief is a thief" no matter what clothing he or she wears.

To end an officers career over baseballs and a popsicle is sad. A lot worse offenses have been committed and officers have kept their jobs.
I assume there is more to the story.

I would like to hear the "Paul Harvey" version of this.
