Suspected Lunch Thief

A recent post from the Wyandotte Police Department from Michigan shows their internal investigations over an officer’s suspected thieving behavior toward their colleague’s food:

Stealing is not only a crime but it is morally wrong too. Some jobs, like that of being a police officer, require you to take an oath prior to starting. Within the officer’s sworn oath is the promise to protect person’s property.

That being said, it saddens me to report that a current officer of the Wyandotte Police Department is under investigation for stealing!

Officer Ice

The incident happened two days ago at the station. Ofc. Barwig was eating lunch in the breakroom when he was called to assist with a person in the WPD jail. He quickly jumped into service, leaving his half eaten lunch on the table. A short while later Barwig and another officer returned to the breakroom only to find Ofc. Ice leisurely strolling out of the room licking his chops. Barwig’s entire lunch was gone….disappeared, vanished!

Ofc. Ice has invoked his fifth amendment right to remain silent and quite frankly is not cooperating with the investigation. He has a history of rummaging through trash cans that are within his reach. There have been several other accusations of him taking food right from coworker’s hands as they walk by.

WPD will consider our Facebook followers opinions on how to proceed with this investigation.

Although officer Ice has the right to remain silent and all, but the police department indicated in further postings that he has been very uncooperative during investigation.  Officer Ice also has a dark history of going through the office trash cans, as well as other coworkers who testified of instances where their food simply disappeared when they weren’t looking while Ice coincidentally passed by.

On the other hand, many people online have also protested in defense of Ice, proclaiming that he is innocent before proven guilty, even suspecting that he’s been falsely accused of a crime, as well as lawyers offering to defend him for free.

Eventually the police department posted an update to this saga:

We have been threatened with massive protests if we move forward with our investigation and/or charges.

Plus the overall public just doesn’t believe he is guilty. No video has been produced.

That being said Ofc Ice will not face any internal discipline or criminal charges.

Matter of fact one of his local supporters, Lunch Wyandotte, dropped him off a custom made sandwich today because they felt like he wasn’t being fed enough. Side note, they threw the officers a tray of sammies too!

The public has spoken. #nochargesforIce

Free sandwiches from a local support of Ice – perhaps as a bribe to stop further investigations:
