Officer Kevin Yang is a fridge felon who picked the wrong workplace to snarf his colleague’s snacks. The suburban Houston police officer was charged with theft and suspended without pay for 30 days after a hidden camera nailed him as the long-sought culprit who was stealing food and drinks from the employee refrigerator.
Yang allegedly took several Monster energy drinks and a bag from a local sandwich shop despite the items being clearly marked as belonging to other officers. This is a misdemeanor and he is expected to continue as a police officer . . . without fridge privileges.
I am a bit skeptical about the need for a criminal charge for a moocher. Why are the costs of charging and adjudication warranted — as opposed to internal discipline?
