An off-duty San Francisco police sergeant was arrested on suspicion of robbing a Rite Aid in San Mateo on Wednesday and also resisting arrest for allegedly trying to run away, according to reporter Henry K. Lee at KTVU (Ch. 2).
Lee identified the suspect as San Francisco police Sgt. Davin Cole, a 27-year veteran assigned to the Field Operations Bureau who is now on unpaid leave. He allegedly demanded painkillers from Rite Aid at 666 Concar Drive, Lee reported.
The San Mateo Police Department reported on social media that patrol officers responded to the report of a robbery in progress at the pharmacy Wednesday evening.
“The suspect attempted to flee the scene on foot, but the actions of quick thinking SMPD officers led to the safe arrest of the suspect,” police said.
Lee reports the sergeant was out on bail Friday.
