New York Officer Josanne Hernandez, 27, allegedly began her career as a police officer with her own crime – or at least shopping – spree. Hernandez is accused of stealing her partner’s credit card and going on a shopping bender at his expense.
Hernandez allegedly rang up nearly $3,500 on a trip to Target and online purchases at Nordstrom’s and Bloomingdale’s as well as other locations.
What is most remarkable is that she was just appointed to the NYPD in January and began uniformed patrol in the 84th Precinct Oct. 11. It was only three days later that she allegedly lifted her partner’s American Express card at the Police Academy in College Point. She was later captured on videotape at a Walgreens in Bedford-Stuyvesant where the stolen American Express card was used.
Hernandez seems to have missed that whole “Thin Blue Line” speech.
