SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Authorities say a San Francisco police officer was arrested in San Mateo on suspicion of robbing a pharmacy and is on unpaid leave pending an internal investigation.
KTVU-TV reported Friday that San Francisco Police Sgt. Davin Cole was booked on charges of robbery in the second degree and resisting arrest for the robbery at a Rite Aid Wednesday. Cole posted bond of $57,500 and was not in custody.
Cole's attorney, Anthony Brass, says he hopes there is compassion for the 27-year veteran who has been dealing with opioid addiction "that has ravaged his life."
